Imagine Books and Records has spent the past seven years in our space creating memories and giving a platform for many musicians and artist in San Antonio. It's more than just a bookstore and record store. Over the past seven years we've hosted four week-long music festivals, hosted hundreds of events, and seen a lot of musicians grow into greats in the local scene. We've had the pleasure of hosting bands from all over the world, from Japan to Germany, Australia, Mexico, Canada and more. We don't plan to stop! We want to keep growing and moving forward.
Above is the space we are leaving behind.
We are so thrilled to announce a big change for the store. We'll be moving into the old tattoo parlor in the same shopping center. Here we'll be able to provide a stage for our events, and brand new layout for the store. A lot goes into moving though and we need your help!
By donating to our fundraiser we'll be able to cover a lot of expenses for moving. (Even moving a few doors down is a lot of work!) We'll be using this funding to renovate the new space and clean up the old one. and getting a few new items, shirts, and more.
By supporting this fundraiser you aren't only helping a independent small business but the Hurd family and the community around Imagine. The teenagers that don't get the opportunity to play at bars downtown, the innovators of San Antonio looking for place to come and create together, and the people who love books, records, and culture in general. We have to hold on to the places that make San Antonio special. This is one way you can have a big impact on our future and be part of something in your city.
We want to give you all a great new space to enjoy, and to do that we'll be raising the funds over the next month and we'll be using them as soon as the fundraiser is over.
From the everyone in the Hurd family we want to thank you so much for supporting this crazy little bookstore. We are eternally grateful. because we wouldn't be here without your support and we hope to keep going into the future with you all.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you at the new shop soon!
