Sainsbury’s to begin selling vinyl
You can also pick up a Crosley Cruiser Turntable for £80.
Sainsbury’s is to begin stocking vinyl records in 171 of its UK stores from Monday (March 21).
The supermarket will offer a limited range of classic LPs, from David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and AC/DC’s Back in Black to Bob Marley’s Legend, as well as recent releases like Adele’s 25, with prices starting at £12.
Pete Selby, head of music and books at Sainsbury’s, told Music Week: “We don’t see this as a novelty gifting fad but a complementary part of our existing music offer with a long term future in our stores.”
The move isn’t totally unexpected – in September, rivals Tesco began stocking LPs, and 2016 is on track to be the biggest-selling year for the format in over two decades.
