Coda Music sold after 30 years of trade in Edinburgh

Culverwell are delighted to have acted on behalf of the owners of Coda Music in selling the freehold of 12 Bank Street, Edinburgh for an undisclosed figure. 

The independent music retailer was founded in Edinburgh in 1990 and was a local institution specialising in Scottish music. They also regularly staged intimate gigs in the shop by bands including Mumford and Sons. 

They originally had a store in the Waverley Shopping Centre until 2004 when they moved to the capital’s Bank Street off the Royal Mile.

Owners, Dougie Anderson and Rose Norton at Coda said the decision had been a difficult one as the business was still attracting custom.  They said: “Coda still is a very busy shop, so in many ways that made it a more difficult decision to let it go. We’re now looking forward to following individual pursuits and having the chance to go see some of the world”. 

The news has provoked an emotional response from fans of the popular music retailer including author Ian Rankin, who tweeted: “Aw man. Great record shop; great people. You’ll be missed!”

The Culverwell team wish them all the best in their retirement.
