underground bee "Chicago has new record stores! What a nice development to happen in 2010, just when it seemed like everyone was predicting the demise of the record store. It seems to me that Chicago has enough music fans to support at least a niche market of these shops, and it's nice to see some new ones on the scene...The choice of CDs and LPs seemed to be pretty good on first glance. It looks like they're aiming to offer an interesting selection rather than attempt a comprehensive inventory." Please check out Robert's photos of Love of Everything at saki. Thanks Robert!

The Deli Magazine "Saki is clearly launching big and with the support of the music community and has a strong future ahead of it."
 
 
flavorpill  "You may have heard the breaking news that record stores are having trouble. Given the twin effects of digital downloads and a slumping economy, you have to root for any music outlet that stares into that abyss, flips it the bird, and goes defiantly brick-and-mortar."

Time Out Chicago blog  "We heard the economy was on the upswing, but this still comes as a surprise. Chicago is getting a new record store. Carrot Top Ltd., the local long-running indie distributor, is opening up an honest-to-god physical retail store for tangible music product."      Aww, come on guys, it's not that weird.
