    Former Free Record Shop - Hoorn

    There still was a Free Record Shop in operation mid-2013.
    The chain of shops went bankrupt, but take over talks where ongoing, so a limited business may be the future.

    August 2013: This shop closed; the nearest is at Hoogstraat 2 - 1441 BC Purmerend.

    2014 Update: All shops closed at May 03 after the second bankrupt of the chain.
