Aberdeen music staple, One Up Records is set to shut its doors after 30 years in business.

It follows news that high street giant HMV is set to head into administration.

The store, located on the city’s Belmont Street, was founded in 1979 and has been one of Scotland’s landmark record shops ever since.

But now, after announcing financial decline back in October, trading is set to cease.

A message from the owners reads:

“It is with deep regret that we have to announce a closing down sale” they wrote. “As you are all aware, recent trading has been very difficult. We cannot express just how much we have appreciated all the support our loyal customers have given over the years.

And we would like to thank all of our past and present staff for their amazing effort who made One Up what it was, we could not have done it without you.”


The shop will close for good on 31 January 2013.
