The London store is the third member of the Third Man physical retail spaces that include buildings in Nashville, Tennessee and Detroit, Michigan.
The record store was conceptualised and created throughout 2020 and 2021 during the Covid pandemic has been personally designed by Third Man founder Jack White with the aim of creating a physical space to help keep record sales and live performances alive after such a tough period for everyone.
