"Manchester wax-lovers mourn today as FAT CITY record shop opens its doors for the final time… as a physical, daily-opening shop anyhow. Making the full move online has been in the works for a while now, and given the weight of online orders versus people walking-in, simply makes more sense.
Fat City’s website will soon be relaunched with a few tweaks here and there … the actual stock will remain at 20 Oldham Street, but ladieswear retailer No Angel will be taking over the upstairs space. Fat City’s staff will man the basement and Jon K will be hosting it to the public every Friday and Saturday between 10am and 6pm."
Shortly after this Fat City moved to London.
