News   Famed Footlight Records Store to Close in July
Footlight Records, the famed Manhattan record store that caters to musical theatre lovers everywhere, will shut its doors at the end of July.

A statement on the company's website reads: "After 30 years in business, [Footlight Records] is pleased to announce that we are going Internet only. More and more of our customers have started shopping through our web-site. Closing the store and going to a strictly online store will give us the potential to provide better service by increasing our selection of hard to find shows and films, expanding our selection of DVD's, lower prices, and much more. "We will still be taking phone orders, of course, for our customers who are not on the net. We plan to upgrade the web-site over the next year. The features will include reviews of new products and an online chat-board. We certainly hope you will visit us in person before our doors close at the end of July. On behalf of everyone at Footlight Records, thank you for your business and friendship over the years."

Footlight Records is located in New York at 113 East 12th Street. For information visit www.footlight.com.
