NEW ULM — If you like music and have no particular place to go, visit downtown New Ulm’s latest music shop, Go Johnny Go.

Go Johnny Go is located at 415 1/2 1st N. St. under the Marktplatz Mall. The store was formally a salon, but has now been retro-fitted into a retro-music shop.

Manager Orlando Manoz said the store opened in March and he is excited to get the word out about shop. Go Johnny Go sells and buys second hand records, tapes, CDs and even 8-tracks. The shop will even sell the equipment necessary to play these old fashion recordings including stereos and speakers.

The store is primarily a music store, but Manoz said they also sell nostalgia items and music memorablia. A customer could pick up a Dark Side of the Moon album and purchase a lava lamp at the same time.

Customers will able to test the merchandise. Manoz is in the process of setting up a listening lounge for customers.

Go Johnny Go is a chain music store owned by Johnny Kass. Similar stores are located in the Twin Cities. This is the only used record store in New Ulm. Manoz said this was one of the reasons the shop came to downtown New Ulm as it was an unmet need.

Go Johnny Go’s Records Revisited is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Sunday.
