Sad news has hit South Florida in the closing of the last remaining Spec’s Music shop in Coral Gables, which was actually the first one that opened.
Operating for nearly 65 years, Spec’s Music was a South Florida-based retail music and video rental chain headquartered in Miami. Spec’s was recognized by Forbe’s Magazine as one of the country’s top 200 best-run small businesses.
The decline of physical album units and the overall rise in digital downloads has contributed to the closing of many record stores in South Florida. One of the greatest moments in Miami music history has been linked to Spec’s, with the performance of the Bee Gees at the South Miami location. To see the termination of Spec’s is saddening, especially since it has built a strong foundation of musical fulfillment in South Florida.
According to store employees, the store will shut its doors by mid-January. In the meantime, they are holding tons of close-out sales, including CD’s, DVD’s, headphones and they even have vinyl records in stock for sale. Check the flyer above.
