Beloved Frankfurt record shop GOSU is closing at the end of 2020.

The news arrived yesterday via social media. “Selling records is by no means easy money,” reads the statement, “and since Covid has become a part of our everyday life, especially in the cultural sector, it has become even more tough.”

The shop, which opened in the summer of 2016, has been a staple of the Frankfurt scene, stocking old and new vinyl, merch and more. Ahead of the closure, the team are offering 25 percent off everything in-store.
