Iconic Audubon Park record shop, Park Ave CD’s (Instagram) has announced that it will be expanding its store over the next few months.
The shop, which just celebrated its 39th anniversary, first opened on Park Avenue in Winter Park, before finding its way to its current home at 2916 Corrine Drive [GMap], and has been in business since 1984. The store will now be expanding into the former home of the adjacent Junior’s Diner, which has been shuttered for months following a sudden unannounced closure and abandoned renovation.
Shop owner, Sandy Bitman, shared that his team was still, “putting our idea board together,” but that the diner was in fairly poor shape and that it would take some time to put it into order. That being said, once it was cleaned up, Bitman expects to host a series of pop-ups and events in the new storefront, though a timeline was still in the works.
Though we can only hope they keep it a diner and add a jukebox featuring records from their collection and lots of fun new merch.
