Movie Mix in the High Street will shut down on July 9

Ilfracombe record store Movie Mix is closing down next month.

The High Street shop will have its final day of trading on Saturday, July 9, with a clearance sale starting at the end of next week, including selected fixtures and fittings.

Owner David Kosky said it was due to the shop lease ending and he and wife Lynne would be moving back to the South East to be nearer their families.

Movie Mix has been open for nine years, offering a mix of new music releases, vinyl and films for sale or rent.

David said: “I am a bit sad to be going, not just because of the relationships I have built up with everybody over the last nine years but also there will not be another shop like us in North Devon.

“I have enjoyed my time, I have learned a lot and have made a lot of good friends, but the time has come to move on and start the next chapter in our lives.”
