Devon record shop goes up for sale on eBay for £9,000

A record shop in Devon has gone up for sale on eBay for £8,999.00.

The shop, which is based in Crediton, Devon has been going for seven years and is being sold because the owner wishes to start another business.

According to the listing, the price includes: "Thousands upon thousands of new and used vinyl singles, albums & box sets, CD singles and albums." It also includes merchandise including badges, posters, mugs and tshirts.

"This is a ready made business for someone to start," the statement reads.

The lease on the shop itself ends October, and the current owners says they will not be renewing it. The site may be available, which is "a matter which needs to be discussed with the landlord," the listing says.

This is not the first record shop to crop up on the auction site in recent months. At the end of last year, the owner of the oldest second-hand record shop in London failed to attract a buyer after placing his store for sale on eBay for £300,000.

Specialising in vintage vinyl, On The Beat Records in Hanway Street, Soho, stocked over 50,000 records. These were all included in the £300,000 'Buy It Now' price, along with the store's leasehold.
