Pmac Music, a Cape Girardeau retail music staple for 23 years, has announced that it is moving from its West Park Village shopping center location to a new space in Merchants Walk shopping center, just across from Town Plaza. The new store, located at 225 S. Plaza Way, will have a slightly larger footprint than the previous space, and will feature a new “listening lounge” where music lovers can sample music prior to purchasing.
Pmac Music was founded in 1996. The business was recently acquired by amiable longtime customer and key employee, Dawn Field. Along with the change of ownership, Field has announced that the Pmac Music store will rebrand and become Discovery Records & CDs. Discovery Records & CDs will continue to offer an inventory of thousands of new and used vinyl albums across all genres, as well as thousands of DVDs and nearly 30,000 CDs.
Chris Cole of Lorimont Commercial Real Estate brokered the recent lease transaction. Cole said that Field plans to open her new store by early January 2020. In addition to the local brick and mortar location, Field will continue to run her online retail operation under the Pmac Music name, offering her inventory nationwide on Amazon and Discogs, among other e-commerce marketplaces.
