Easy Street Records celebrates 30 years; Clever video promotes 30% off CD Sale
In business 30 years, Easy Street Records has seen a lot of changes in the music industry from the arrival of the CD, to the rise of streaming. The entire time they've remained true to their mission. Bring the music.
Easy Street opened its store in West Seattle in 1988, and later added a cafe/bar, which serves coffee, breakfast, lunch and beer & wine. Easy Street Records often hosts live in-store performances by national and local musicians. The store carries new and used CDs, vinyl records, DVDs/BluRays, new books, magazines and company-branded merchandise.
Owner/President Matt Vaughan worked at two different record stores during his teen years. In 1987, with both stores ready to go out of business simultaneously, Vaughan approached both owners and offered to consolidate the two stores into one. Vaughan opened Easy Street Records in the Junction in 1988 and the following year moved the store down the street to its current location on the primary corner of the Junction in the historic Hamm Building. In 1999, he leased the space next door, installed a new kitchen and bar, and by 2001 had opened a full-service cafe. The following year he opened a second, much larger store in the Queen Anne neighborhood, which thrived for 11 years until its closure in 2013.
To promote their 30 years in business they have produced a clever, frenetic and funny video
