Franklin sisters open Luna Record Shop at The Factory
FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Luna Record Shop will open its doors in The Factory in Franklin in early November. Owners Calvert Gentry McMahan and Brenna Gentry have billed the enterprise as a “vinyl lifestyle store.”
The Franklin-grown sisters plan to offer new and used vinyl records, as well as a carefully curated collection of related gifts. In a prepared statement, Brenna Gentry said the shop is intended to “bring back a record store experience that is not currently here in Franklin.”
In addition to buying and selling “gently used” vinyl, the Luna Record Shop will sell limited edition pressings from different eras and genres as well as rare imports. The store will also be a source for select pressings from Nashville-based Third Man Records and other local music.
The sisters grew up in Franklin in a family that was plugged into the local music scene, according to an article in Franklin Home Page. Hearing music created during impromptu jam sessions instilled in them a passion for music that they hope to share through their store.
The storefront is an expansion for Gentry and McMahon, as they started Luna Records as an online store at www.lunarecordshop.com. The storefront will have a more extensive inventory than the online store.
Hours of operation for the new store at The Factory will be 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays.
