Travelling the Groove records was launched in September 2020 with a desire to bring the joy of owning and listening to music on vinyl to the Deepings and beyond, an area where local options were limited. There are shops offering 2nd hand records but there was no where to buy new records.
At Travelling the Groove we love finding new records for people to discover, so we stock a lot of new releases, and finding records that our customers have on their ‘want to buy’ lists, so we have arrangements with a host of different record labels. It’s all about that personal service for us.
I’m James, the owner of Travelling the Groove, and I have loved listening to music on vinyl from a young age. I’ve worked in travel for many years but always had that desire to open my own record store. Having been made redundant due to the pandemic, I took the opportunity to do just that. I started the store online and also have a regular stall at Stamford market on a Friday, with plans for a full-blown shop in the near future. We want to bring vinyl to the local community and surrounding areas, so offer click and collect at the market, local hand delivery (sometimes even on the day of purchase), as well as normal Royal mail, all in safe, strong packaging.
If you listen on vinyl or have fancied starting a collection then why not head to the website, come and see us at Stamford market, we always enjoy meeting our customers face to face, or get in touch by email or the contact form on the website. You will also find us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for all of our latest news.
