- "We're looking for a new home now, and we hope to be back up and running soon," the owners say.
Invisible City has closed its Toronto storefront.
The record shop and label announced the move in an email today, adding that they will continue selling records online while they look for a new location. "The business we were sharing the space with has decided to go in a different direction that does not include us anymore," the owners wrote in an email today. "We're looking for a new home now, and we hope to be back up and running soon!"
Meanwhile, the online record shop will be business as usual. Specializing in funk, disco and soul (especially from Africa and the Caribbean), Invisible City opened for business in November of 2016, as an offshoot of the reissue label Invisible City Editions.
Cofounder Brandon Hocura also split off from Invisible City in 2017 to start his own online store and label, Séance Center.
