A new record store called Trax Records officially opened this week in Prescott.

New record store in Prescott

A record store called Trax Records has just opened up next to Nastee Dogs along South Montezuma Street in downtown Prescott.

The store sells, buys and trades new and used vinyl and CD’s.

With Hasting’s closing completely at the end of the month, Trax Records will be the only storefront in Prescott to sell such items.

Owner Daryl Halleck has, off-and-on, owned record stores in the Quad-cities since 1987.

The store’s address is 234 S. Montezuma St.

Jay’s Bird Barn expanding

Jay’s Bird Barn, a backyard wild bird and nature gift store, has nearly completed a large expansion of its Prescott location, 1048 Willow Creek Road.

The store, which moved to its current location in 2005, has gone from being 1,895 to 5,142 square feet.

A new Hallmark department that will include greeting cards, keepsake ornaments, collectibles and gift lines will soon take up a significant portion of the new square footage.

Hallmark hasn’t been in the Quad city area since its Prescott location closed in the Prescott Gateway Mall nearly three years ago.

Jay’s Bird Barn owner Eric Moore expects the re-model and Hallmark to be completely done and open to the public by Oct. 24.

Stepping Stones expands

Stepping Stones Thrift’s location along Goodwin Street in the Plaza Liquor Deli shopping center recently completed an expansion.

The store was expanded into a neighboring space previously occupied by Empire Beauty School.

The doors to the new space officially opened Saturday, Oct. 8.

Dutch Bros raises nearly $2K

On Thursday, Sept. 29, Prescott Valley’s Dutch Bros donated $1 for every drink sold to the Boys & Girls Club of Central Arizona for the company’s annual Buck for Kids Day.

The business raised $1,875.86 for the nonprofit by the end of the day.
