Legendary record store in downtown Brussels, The Collector, to close its doors

Located not far from La Bourse, The Collector record store will close in the coming weeks following the retirement of the store manager.

Vinyls, CDs and other collectible records abound in this well-known music shop on rue de la Bourse.

The retiring store manager took over the business in 1982 from his mother, who originally founded the shop. 24,000 of the store’s vinyl records have yet to be sold.
