DENVER (CBS4) – For over 40 years, people have been coming to Wax Trax for their for all their music needs. In all that time, co-owner Duane Davis has never seen his store like this.
“This is the most unusual situation we’ve ever had occur,” he told CBS4’s Dominic Garcia.
Because of coronavirus, sales are down around 90%. Due to safety concerns, customers aren’t allowed to browse the store’s selection. Wax Trax has had a website for some time, but never sold music on it. Duane and co-owner Dave Stidman knew they had to adapt to survive, but they needed help.
“The other owner and I are pretty much old school. So computers are a little bit of a mystery to us,” Davis told CBS4.
Luckily, Stidman’s son, Pete, recently moved back to town and has been helping post their inventory online. Slowly but surely they’ve continued to make progress.
“It is time consuming but it has been gratifying to see, putting some of those oddball items up really gets people’s attention,” Davis told CBS4’s Dominic Garcia.
He says they plan to allow customers back in the store when the virus dies down, but in the meantime are asking people to use their new website for all their music needs.
“Stay safe, stay sane, and keep an eye out. Stay tuned.”
