New York record label Mexican Summer has opened a brand new record store under the name Brooklyn Record Exchange.
Working in collaboration with Mike Hunchback and Ben Steidel of Co-Op 87, Brooklyn Record Exchange is located in Bushwick in the same complex as music venue Elsewhere and marks the label’s second major record shop.
“Brooklyn Record Exchange reimagines the classic record store experience within a spacious yet welcoming environment designed for wandering and wondering,” the label explains.
“Within and across its walls and nestled in its deep bins, Brooklyn Record Exchange’s selections jump genres and travel time ensuring music enthusiasts of all walks will find that record that redirects their orbit.”
The shop displays a dedicated area for all Mexican Summer’s own releases as well as stocking new vinyl releases, classic records, reissues along with films and books.

OK folks – BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Co-op 87 has joined forces with Mexican Summer/Anthology on a brand new record store! BROOKLYN RECORD EXCHANGE is BIGGER and BETTER and in BUSHWICK! Located in the same building as Elsewhere and Mission Chinese, right off of the Jefferson L stop. Our grand opening is THIS SATURDAY March 30th. We've got an amazing selection of records and you are NOT going to want to miss out. You may have noticed that Co-op 87 has been closed lately.
