Hi, nice to meet you! I'm Sophie, 21 years old, music lover and proud owner of Artistic Recordstore, located in Grou.
Let's take a trip down memory lane while I introduce you to my company and the wonderful journey behind the succes story
Summer 2022, just after moving back to Grou, I saw that a store-space in need of some love became available for rent...Immediately I thought of opening my very own tiny recordstore. How cool!
I drew up a business plan and took out a loan to start my own business...but before I could officially open the doors... I had a lot of work to do. The space got a complete makeover with the help of my sweet dad and handyman. Credits to him.
Opening day was amazing! Soon more and more vinyl lovers came to check out the store...and returned home with a smile on their face and a new record to spin.
During the first year there were some moments where it was very quiet and I started questioning everything... but the customer base kept on growing and I never gave up on my goals and dreams.
Now, more than a year later, here we are. The collection the store offers got bigger and bigger, regular customers became friends, the webshop I build myself is selling records all over the world... we've organized some amazing instores and I continue learning every single day.
I am blessed to be a part of the pure enjoyment that music and vinyl record collecting offers so many of you, so I will continue to work hard to provide even more people with the Artistic Recordstore experience: personal and cozy - like the good old times, but with a modern twist.
