RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - You may have noticed a "for lease" sign in the window of Plan 9 Music in Carytown.  The well known record store isn't closing, but relocating.

The store manager, David Sullivan, tells NBC12 his lease is coming up soon and hopes to find a smaller space that would be a better fit for him financially.  Sullivan says the industry has been hit pretty hard in the last decade with CD's becoming more collector oriented.

But he has seen a resurge in interest of vinyl, especially among people under the age of 20.  Sullivan says the goal is to stay in Carytown which Plan 9 has called home for 30 years.
