Renfield Record Exchange - My Son Scott Opens a Store in Jerome, Arizona and in Cyberspace
I am pleased to share the good news that my son, Scott, has realized a life-long dream of opening a record store. He and his girlfriend, Lacey Ritter, have just opened Renfield Record Exchange in the quaint mountain town of Jerome, Arizona. Jerome was once a bustling copper mining town, became a virtual ghost town, and is now experiencing a bit a resurgence as it attracts artists, artisans, vintners and others looking for a slower pace of life than can be found in more urban settings. I fell in love with Jerome when Scott and Lacey took me there a few months ago. The panoramic view toward the northeast - looking at the area around Sedona - is spectacularly beautiful.
The local newspaper, the Verde Independent, just ran a piece about the opening of the store.

The article mentions Scott's encyclopedic knowledge about music. I can attest to that fact. He has been collecting CD's and vinyl albums and memorabilia since he was a kid, and he has studied assiduously the background of each musician and group represented in his collection. If you are looking for help in tracking down a lost album or favorite song from long ago or a recent release by an obscure band, chances are that Scott will be able to help you.
In addition to their "brick and mortar" store at 403 Clark Street in Jerome, Scott and Lacy also offer an on-line store through Amazon.
