In July, Rough Trade announced that they are to open a record shop in Nottingham, with more stores to follow.

The music chain already has shops in Shoreditch and Ladbroke Grove in London, as well as in Brooklyn, New York, but they will be branching out to Nottingham’s Creative Quarter shortly, setting up what they say will be “our finest store, yet.”
