Metro Times: Ann Arbor's Encore Recordings owner plans retirement as employees hope to buy store
Encore Recordings owner Peter Dale is ready to retire - and he figures the upcoming lease expiration for his East Liberty Street store is the perfect time to do it, according to a report in the Metro Times.
Now Dale and a group of his employees are trying to value the store so that the employees can purchase it, the Metro Times says.
If that happens, Encore fans - and there are many of them, both in Ann Arbor and beyond - will still find the used recording store open after long-time owner Dale moves on.
