Truck Smashes Through Wall of Popular Fort Collins Record Store
A popular Fort Collins record store is on the mend after a vehicle crashed into the shop on Saturday (Dec. 4) night.
According to a Facebook post from Bizarre Bazaar Books & Music, the incident occurred around 10 p.m., when a red pickup truck lost control on College Avenue and smashed through the southwest corner of the store.
Thankfully, no one — including the truck driver and a passenger — sustained any injuries in the accident. The store noted that the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel and that they were not under the influence at the time of the incident.
However, the crash did cause significant damage to the shop's third room, which contains CDs, vinyl records, books, and a Darth Vader figurine.
Members of Bizarre Bazaar's staff came in on Sunday (Dec. 5) to clean up the third room and make it accessible to the public. A professional restoration team is currently working to return the store to normal.
"Was quite a night. Glad that no one was hurt. Except Darth Vader," said the store. "Record room is definitely open for business, even during our clean up [sic] process. Thank you for your kind words, thoughts and patience!!"
The shop also took the opportunity to show off its current recond collection, which includes The Beatles' The White Album on white vinyl, and reveal that the Darth Vader figurine will likely be making a full recovery.
