The first of two Brooklyn Record Exchange stores opens this week.
New York label Mexican Summer is opening two new record stores under the name Brooklyn Record Exchange in the city later this month.
According to a post on Instagram, Mexican Summer has joined forces with existing Brooklyn store Co-Op 87 on the new venture, which is called Brooklyn Record Exchange. Co-Op 87’s Greenpoint store will be rebranded and reopened in “the near future”, while a new store in the same complex as music venue Elsewhere will open later this week.

OK folks – BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Co-op 87 has joined forces with Mexican Summer/Anthology on a brand new record store! BROOKLYN RECORD EXCHANGE is BIGGER and BETTER and in BUSHWICK! Located in the same building as Elsewhere and Mission Chinese, right off of the Jefferson L stop. Our grand opening is THIS SATURDAY March 30th. We've got an amazing selection of records and you are NOT going to want to miss out. You may have noticed that Co-op 87 has been closed lately. Fear not, we will be re-opening in Greenpoint in the near future, but for now please visit us in our new digs. New store, same knuckleheads. You won't be disappointed!
The new store, located on Johnson Ave, will stock new vinyl, reissues, films and books, and includes a dedicated area for Mexican Summer’s own releases, including books from its Anthology Editions publishing arm. It opens this Saturday, March 30.
Full details of the store, including opening times, can be found at the Brooklyn Record Exchange website.
