It’s been a tricky few months for Douglas traders.
Musiczone was one of many stores forced into a nightmare situation when the car park fire at Douglas Shopping Centre left the business without a premises.
Things are looking up for Cork music fans however; the beloved vinyl specialists have found a new temporary store.
In an email to the store’s loyal customers, owner Ray O’Brien revealed that Musiczone is now open at Unit 4, Deanrock Business Park in Togher (Eir code T12KR9F).
With ample free parking (the business park is also home to a café, a bingo hall, a garage and LifeFM) Ray, who has been keeping his customers supplied with fresh vinyl fro the boot of his car, hopes to open the doors on Friday.
Great to see that Ray and @MusicZoneDV have found a new premises in the Dean Business Park in Togher. It’s much closer to my house than the original spot. This could be dangerous….. @FionaBeag pic.twitter.com/Xw6UShBAME

There’s some housekeeping to take care of first, but you can drop in, collect your order and say hello from tomorrow.
“I am only getting the keys Friday morning so will be there from 10.30am to 6pm on Friday and from 11am to 5pm on Saturday….but will only have “pick up” stock of what folks have ordered from me and a few bits of new releases etc.” Ray explains.
So what’s hot on the shelves?
“I have the new Battles record on standard CD or independent shop-only coloured vinyl, the new Floating Points album, a brand new Mark Lanegan record called Somebody’s Knocking on Heavenly Records, independent shop-only blue coloured vinyl on 2LP, there is a PJ Harvey score to the movie All About Eve on CD and Sufjan Stevens is also a score available on CD or deluxe vinyl records, the Twilight Sad reissue Oran Mor on vinyl.”
The Musiczone shop is expected to be up and running by next week.
Popping in this weekend? The wifi is on the fritz for now so bring cash.
