Say goodbye to Hit Records at a two-day closeout sale this weekend

Ron Ross at Hit Records.

Hit Records was anything but a one-hit wonder. The record store in the Casa View Shopping Center will close after 46 years in business.

Owner Ron Ross said on Facebook that the store’s lease is up, and he doesn’t agree with the new terms. He would rather sell than try to move, according to the post.

A two-day closeout sale will take place from 3-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the record shop at 10253 Ferguson Road.

“Come see Ron and buy a piece of record store history,” the Facebook post said.

Ross began working at Hit Records in 1974, and bought the store in 1986, CultureMap reported. Over the years, rock bands, such as The Ramones, AC/DC and Aerosmith, have come through its doors.

Every inch of Hit Records is covered in memorabilia, from Chuky dolls to baseball cards to a pair of Chuck Taylors signed by Marky Ramone.

Oh yeah, the store sells records too.

Hit Records’ closing is the second Dallas record store to shut its doors in January. Bill’s Records closed after owner Bill Wisener died earlier this month.
