Old-School Record Shop Opens on LaVista
Ella Guru Record Shop opened last month in the Oak Grove shopping center.
A all-vinyl record shop opened quietly in Oak Grove last month. And it's more of a return than an opening.
From the TNT post, a brief history of this store as it has traveled throughout metro Atlanta:
Don Radcliffe opened the first Ella Guru in Vista Grove shopping center in the late 1990s. A few years later he packed up and relocated to the Publix-anchored Toco Hill shopping center. The store later expanded into a second storefront but in 2007, he moved once again. Subleasing a small space from an adjacent scooter shop, Ella Guru reopened on Elizabeth Street in Inman Park in late 2007. The store was not far from today's Victory Sandwich. When the scooter shop closed and Radcliffe was unable to negotiate a new economical feasible lease, he closed the shop in February 2009.
