The next chapter in the saga of J&R has been announced. The downtown music and computer retailer which closed its website and Park Row store back in April will be opening a J&R Express location in the basement of the downtown location of Century 21, another iconic New York City retailer, sometime in the next several months.
This new location will offer portable electronics, computer gadgets, music in CD and LP form and movies. In addition, the J&R Express location will also offer in store music performances. From 2006 through 2012 J&R ran what sounds like a similar operation in Macy’s Herald Square location.
In the meantime, the main location of J&R remains shuttered. According to J&R, plans for the redevelopment of of that location are being made.
