Shuga Records opening Wicker Park location this fall
Shuga Records' in-the-works Wicker Park location
North Lawndale-based record store Shuga Records are slated to open a Wicker Park location this fall at 1272 N. Milwaukee Ave. (near the intersection of Milwaukee & Ashland). The shop currently sees many of its online sales from the Wicker Park area, and they've been trying to move to the neighborhood for a few years now. Their Wicker Park location plans to open in October by appointment only, and should be open to the general public by the holidays. Keep an eye out.
Just after Shuga makes its soft opening, Wicker Park record institution Reckless Records plans to move into their new space at 1379 N. Milwaukee Ave. (0.2 miles apart) in November.
