Or indeed, the entire country.

This thread should be made a sticky. Let everyone know as quick as possible so they go in and buy what they can.

Most people who frequent Plugd will know within an hour and will bust a gut to get into the shop as much as possible.

I see the point you're making though.

Absolutely no chance of doing a Road Records on it and organizing a massive fundraiser no? I'm pretty sure every band/promoter/gig goes/alternative music lover would be up for spending as much as they afford to keep the place afloat. Is this a possibility?

This is such awful, awful news but I think we all know Jim & Albert wouldn't have made this decision if they didn't think it was the best thing to do right now And I have faith that this is not the end for Plugd!

There's gonna be a big gaping hole not just on Washington St but in the Cork music scene without Plugd. It's been such a huge part of all of our lives for nearly a decade -that's just amazing. It's a community, not just a shop.
