Wellington to get less Groovy

After over ten years of providing a music Mecca for Wellingtonians, Real Groovy is set to close its doors for good.

The music store has operated on Cuba Street since 1999, but will close on May 31.

Owner Mark Thomas cites a number of reasons for the closure, including the economic recession, big chain retailers selling at cut prices, file sharing, and competition from online retailers and auctions sites.

Students are disappointed that Real Groovy will be closing. “It had so much more variety than the other stores, which all have the same old stuff,” says one Victoria student.

Thomas hopes a small version of the store may be able to open in the future. He hopes this will allow him to re-employ some the 12 staff who have lost their jobs.

For bargain hunters, Real Groovy will be holding a sale until the store closes.
