Ikaros Records/Vinyl Monster

Hi Lefteris... How did the store start?
L: The shop opened its doors in 2001. It was run by me and my brother who has also owned Ikaros Music since 1992. It was very different back then, we only had computer supplies and, of course, vinyl accessories. In 2006 we divided the tasks, I run the retail store and my brother is in charge of the wholesale.
How did you decide to start a record store?
