SCRAPE is calling it a day / SCRAPE is for sale

Vancouver is about to become a lot less METAL
“DISCIPLES”...the time has come...SCRAPE is calling it a day
This will probably come as a surprise to most and not no much to others. After thinking about this through great lengths over the past few years I have come to the conclusion that it has come time to announce that SCRAPE records will be closing its doors forever.
We're looking to close some time this summer. Exact day is TBA. Until a firm date is set, it's business as usual. We will still be getting new releases and restocks. Stock up while you can! We're hoping to put together a special farewell show / event. Stay tuned.
For the record, pun intended, the decision to close isn't due to poor sales or some weirdness with the landlord. It's 100% my decision and one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make. The simple reality is that I've been working music retail for 23 years + owning / running SCRAPE for nearly 18 of those 23 years. It's time to move on. I know I have many ideas / goals I'd still like to accomplish in music and outside music.
That being said, in order for me to be able to put in the proper time, effort and attention to make my new ideas / ambitions / goals a reality, I must close the store or preferably sell the store. I'm terrified, but excited.
Your years of support as customer, supplier, label, promoter has meant everything in keeping the doors open for nearly 18 years. I'm extremely grateful for all your years of loyalty and it's been never taken for granted. That's what makes this the toughest. We hope to see you in store over the next few months.
Lots of you thought I was crazy back in '96-'97 when I had the idea to open a Hard Rock / Metal Shop. Now I'll probably be considered crazy for closing. Especially when SCRAPE is still profitable.
Perhaps SCRAPE needs fresh blood? Perhaps YOU might want to take over the reigns and own SCRAPE and keep the METAL flowing? It doesn't have to stop! The METAL is in your hands!
SCRAPE is officially for sale! Serious inquiries only.
Until The Fog Passes...we aren't done until we're done.
