All That Music & Video, a haven for El Paso's music lovers, will close temporarily while it doubles in size at The Fountains at Farah.
Owner George Reynoso announced the current location will close Jan. 10 while it moves into a temporary location across from P.F. Chang's. It will reopen there on Jan. 13 while the original store undergoes some reconstruction, including the removal of a wall.
It will take about three months to complete. A larger space always was the plan, Reynoso said.
“We look forward to the expansion, which will accommodate the deeper, curated inventory longtime fans have come to expect,” Reynoso said in a news release. “No one has been unaffected by the life-changing events of the last two years. We hope you agree that this 90-day inconvenience will make it all worthwhile. Thank you, El Paso, Juarez and Las Cruces for your patience and continued support.”
The newly expanded storefront will reopen in April, just in time for Record Store Day on April 16.
The much larger location will allow for merchandising tens of thousands of media units currently stored at an office warehouse, Reynoso said.
"Look for a much deeper selection of vinyl LPs, CDs and DVDs in all categories," he said.
The popular music store moved into the Fountains in January 2020 and then endured the pandemic and closures until July 2020.
“Since then we’ve steadily adapted to the new normal despite our cramped and limited space,“ Reynoso said. “In a digital age, the sales and support from our customers for physical media has been nothing short of miraculous.”
