CITIZEN VINYL RECORD PRESSING PLANT TO OPEN IN ASHEVILLE, NC THIS SEPTEMBER
NORTH CAROLINA’S FIRST VINYL MANUFACTURER WILL TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN HISTORIC CITIZEN-TIMES BUILDING
RECORD STORE, MUSIC STUDIO, BAR/CAFE AMONG PLANS FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION
A full circle revival is underway for Asheville, NC’s Citizen-Times building. Once home to the daily paper’s printing facility and offices, the historic site will soon be unveiled with a new identity as a boutique vinyl pressing plant, record store and bar/cafe (and a new name): Citizen Vinyl. Founded by veteran music producer Gar Ragland and supported by a dream team of industry professionals and craftsmen, Citizen Vinyl is slated to become North Carolina’s first on site pressing plant, though its mission goes beyond just manufacturing great quality records.
