New York City, USA – On April 2, 2005 Stern’s Music will close its
doors to move to New Jersey, to continue as a mail-order distribution operation.
"This is indeed sad news for the loyal music buyers who loved us for making
available hard-to-find classic releases, from Africa in particular, and from
various parts of the world," said a company press release.
The Stern’s Music website will still operate from London’s headquarter (http://www.sternsmusic.com),
where visitors can order directly from a larger selection of world music titles
than the store was ever able to carry.
Stern’s Music is having a store-wide sale until Saturday, April 2nd – offering a
$2.00 discount on all CDs (except CDs already on sale at $10.00 or less). Sale applies to in-store stock only. This
will be the last chance to visit the store at 71 Warren Street (between W.
Broadway & Greenwich St.), NYC. For further detailed information or mail orders,
call the store at 212-964-5455.
