STORE UPDATE: Please Read -- November 23rd, 2015
Nov. 23, 2015
As we wrap up the final week of November and look ahead to December to what currently looks to be the final month of SCRAPE, I would like to throw these thoughts your way.
There is no question, the METAL COMMUNITY does NOT want to see the demise of SCRAPE.
The DISCIPLES' loyalty and concern over the past seven months since the first announcement was made has been overwhelming. The store doesn’t have to close. The landlord wants the store to stay. It’s just time for me to move on.
Therefore, I’m looking outside the box and want to offer YOU the final opportunity to carry on the legacy of SCRAPE without breaking your bank.
I feel a fair and reasonable deal is still possible in the remaining weeks involving the right person or persons who have the best of intentions in keeping the integrity of SCRAPE intact -- perhaps not with the funds to buy it all -- while still being able to make a solid investment.
I’m open to legitimate offers from candidates who don’t waste my time and want to work together. If you’re cool and not looking to be a vulture, I’m willing to make concessions.
Let the discussions begin!
I have no time for Lurkers / Opportunists / Holdouts / Looky-Loos.
STORE UPDATE - please read
Oct. 1, 2015
Well…a lot of you have been asking me (J.J.) over the past few weeks…Why are you still at the store? Hasn’t the store sold? I thought you had a buyer? The store isn’t closed? Are you closing? What’s the deal?
Here’s some answers…
SCRAPE hasn’t “yet" been sold. We’ve hit a snag with the still likely buyer and it’s hard to say if or when the sale will get completed. The sale should've been completed months ago. Having said that, I can’t wait indefinitely to see if this deal will get done. I will remain hopeful the sale can be salvaged with the current buyer, but in the meantime I must move forward. Too much time has evaporated. I hate not being able to give you the answers you deserve and it's preventing me from moving into my post-SCRAPE life.
As of Oct.1, since there is no definitive buyer or sale of SCRAPE, I (J.J.) will continue as owner / operator of SCRAPE until the end of 2015. No further.
While we wait to see if a sale can be completed, I will throw the bone out one last time to see if any of you are interested in buying SCRAPE records and carrying on the torch.
For the record (pun intended), I don’t need to sell or close SCRAPE, it’s just time for me to move on and try new things. The store is still very profitable. Yet I would like to see SCRAPE remain an institution for years to come to those “DISCIPLES" who have made SCRAPE what it is. I’m not about to give the product, name, goodwill, etc away. The METAL is in your hands! No buyer = no SCRAPE in 2016 and beyond.
Serious inquiries only. Don’t waste my time. I won’t waste yours.
I thank all “DISCIPLES", suppliers, promoters, etc for your patience through this process. Your continued loyalty and concerns are much appreciated.

SCRAPE is calling it a day / SCRAPE is for sale
Apr. 30, 2015
Vancouver is about to become a lot less METAL
“DISCIPLES”...the time has come...SCRAPE is calling it a day
This will probably come as a surprise to most and not no much to others. After thinking about this through great lengths over the past few years I have come to the conclusion that it has come time to announce that SCRAPE records will be closing its doors forever.
We're looking to close some time this summer. Exact day is TBA. Until a firm date is set, it's business as usual. We will still be getting new releases and restocks. Stock up while you can! We're hoping to put together a special farewell show / event. Stay tuned.
For the record, pun intended, the decision to close isn't due to poor sales or some weirdness with the landlord. It's 100% my decision and one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make. The simple reality is that I've been working music retail for 23 years + owning / running SCRAPE for nearly 18 of those 23 years. It's time to move on. I know I have many ideas / goals I'd still like to accomplish in music and outside music.
That being said, in order for me to be able to put in the proper time, effort and attention to make my new ideas / ambitions / goals a reality, I must close the store or preferably sell the store. I'm terrified, but excited.
Your years of support as customer, supplier, label, promoter has meant everything in keeping the doors open for nearly 18 years. I'm extremely grateful for all your years of loyalty and it's been never taken for granted. That's what makes this the toughest. We hope to see you in store over the next few months.
Lots of you thought I was crazy back in '96-'97 when I had the idea to open a Hard Rock / Metal Shop. Now I'll probably be considered crazy for closing. Especially when SCRAPE is still profitable.
Perhaps SCRAPE needs fresh blood? Perhaps YOU might want to take over the reigns and own SCRAPE and keep the METAL flowing? It doesn't have to stop! The METAL is in your hands!
SCRAPE is officially for sale! Serious inquiries only.
Until The Fog Passes...we aren't done until we're done.
