Exmouth’s only record shop, Onionheart, has closed after almost 20 years.
The store, in Staples Mews, Exeter Road, will instead continue as an online business from April.
Owners Michael and Aaron left a farewell message and said: “Many thanks for your trade and support for the last 19 years.
“Onionheart will continue as an online store so don’t be a stranger!”
Simon Wood from Exmouth’s Chamber of Commerce said: “Its owner, Michael, has provided me with hours of wonderful tunes and has also helped me through weeks of difficult times over the past ten years. Thank you for having been there.
“I’m sure there are plenty of people who will be missing his welcome and time. I wish him well in the future.”
