A beloved Brisbane record store has announced it will be closing.

Phase 4 Records, currently based in Fortitude Valley, shared the news on Facebook yesterday afternoon. 

"The shoppe as you know it will be closing down here at 680 Ann Street, Fortitude Valley very soon," the store's owners wrote. 

"So whether you might be crying into your hands or clasping them, stay tuned for updates and more detailed speech writing. New stock will still be hitting the floor as per normal as we got a nice swag of LPs in this week."

When approached by The Music, co-owner Julie Morrison confirmed the news but would not comment further. 

Opened in 2015, Phase 4 Records has become a staple in Brisbane's vinyl landscape. We spoke to both Morrison and partner Donat Tahiraj, along with some other wax slingers from across the country, for Record Store Day last year about their collection. Read the feature here.
