Record store opens in downtown Macon, extension of 100.9 The Creek

Falling Star Records opened in downtown Macon on Second Street in November. 

The store is an extension of the radio station The Creek and is affiliated with Creek Media (100.9 The Creek) and Falling Star Records, according to co-owner Wes Griffith. 

"It's not a record store where you're going to be thumbing through thousands of records trying to find a gem; we've got all kinds of gems in here," Griffith said about the records sold in the store. 

He says he and his partners have collected the best of the best from Classic Country to Blues.

Much of the product is vinyl, but he added that they do have a few CDs here and there. 

"We just want to help contribute to people discovering music like they used to," Griffith said passionately about the vision for the store. 

Aside from vinyl, he says there will always be turntables options in stock at the store.

He also mentioned that the the original Falling Star Records was on Vineville in Macon and his parents ran it back when they were college students at Mercer University. That's where they got the store name from. 

The store is located at 362 Second Street and open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
