A BARROW record shop has been named ‘Shop Of The Month’ by hit music magazine Record Collector.

TNT Records was the winner of the prestigious title for the magazine’s May edition.

Owner and founder Dave Turner revealed he was ecstatic that Record Collector honoured his business.

He said: “We’re overwhelmed with it.

“They have been going for over 40 years, Record Collector and they are an iconic magazine and they are the biggest music monthly out there.

“To even have a mention in it is a big deal, but to be highlighted as Shop Of The Month is just crazy.

“We are really proud of it.

“We are just blown away by it.

“We stock the magazine every month, but to be in it is a completely different thing.”

The shop, which opened in 2019, has proved to be a huge hit, with customers coming from across the country.

Mr Turner said: “We are obviously tucked away in Barrow and helping put it on the map for different reasons. Musically we’re having people travelling up and down the country to come to TNT Records.”

From Blues music to Indie, Mr Turner says TNT Records provides records for music fans of all genres.

There is also a listening booth for customers to try out vinyls as well as bands' merchandise.

A real feature of the shop is its commitment to customer service.

“It is all to do with the customers at the end of the day,” Mr Turner explained.

“We do pride ourselves on our customer service. We roll out the red carpet for everybody in the store, no matter what walk of life.

“Whether they spend a penny or if they don’t spend anything it doesn’t matter to us.

“We just love the music and we’re purely run by passion.

“We’re a family-run business and have that personal touch, which you don’t get online.”

TNT Records can be found on 86 Duke Street, Barrow, and is open seven days a week.
