Recycle Music Says Goodbye... For Now 

Popular music store in Bend closes doors, looks to a potential reopening

One of Bend's suppliers of tunes both new and old, Recycle Music, has announced the closure of its current location on NW Bond Street. The popular music store was home to a vast selection of vinyl, CDs, tapes, and more. The business announced the closure through Instagram on May 16.

"Due to the pandemic, Recycle Music has decided to close the business permanently," wrote owner Keith Schuman. "The intimate nature of this building, and concerns over safety for the staff, customers, and our families were the main factors in this decision."

  • Music listeners and collectors arrive early as possible to Recycle Music on Record Store Day 2019.
Just last year I was at Recycle Music on Record Store Day, chatting with Schuman, his employees and their customers about the importance of the holiday (which has been pushed back until June this year). I purchased a copy of "Double Dose of Danger" by Czarface that day, and spent probably an hour in the store just talking with other people who love music. Recycle had an atmosphere and presence that will definitely be missed.

On the bright side, Schuman said there still may be a future for Recycle Music, only in a different location.

"When a complete and controlled situation is in place for the COVID-19 virus, the plan is to re-open the store in a new location," Schuman wrote. "The timeline is obviously unclear."
