Kingston rallies around Brian's Record Option after store flooded

If you’ve ever stepped inside Brian’s Record Option in Kingston, you know it’s a one-of-a-kind store.  We stopped in for Record Store Day 2018 and talked to the owner Brian Lipsin who says “every 10 years I get the fire department in… they’re more lenient than the average person walking in…”

On Saturday August 4th a broken water main flooded the store – check out this video shot on Princess Street, you can see water pouring out the front door and onto the street where kids were playing in it.

Our Global Kingston reporters got a look inside Brian’s Record Option and Tommy’s next door to check out the damage.

Good news, there’s now a GoFundMe campaign to help Brian get back on his feet, and after a few days it’s already raised over $6000 of its $10,000 goal.
