Couple opens a one-of-a-kind store in Woodlawn

Features vintage records, clothing, shoes, jewelry

Woodlawn, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) - Rick Rhodes has had a life long love of vinyl. Records that is. He recently spun his hobby into a business called "Rick's Record Shack & Wifey's Closet". Janis is Rick's wife. She says "Rick calls me wifey all the time." She has a store too. Actually her store is in the same place. Records in one half the the place and clothing, jewelry, shoes, purses and much more on the other side.

Janice thought she should provide something for the women who come in with their husbands, adding "Men can spend hours and hours on records." Instead of the wives getting bored, they can now check out Janis' merchandise.

The clever couple has created a cool shop that appeals to men and women. Rick says the number one customers these days are millennials. And one of the most popular records is Bing Crosby 's White Christmas. Rick buys up as many copies as he can find.

If you are looking for a place that's run by a happy couple that sells a little of everything, Rick's Record Shack & Wifey's Closet is on Route 5 in Woodlawn. You can also find them on Facebook and Ebay.
