Wooden Tooth Records: Expanding the World of Vinyl in Tucson

Kellan Fortier, co-owner of Wooden Tooth Records, joined Karla on this week’s Thrive Tucson. After their 2015 opening in the backroom of Cafe Passe, Wooden Tooth Records has since relocated to their own space on 7th street. There they offer competitively priced vinyl from plenty of local and national acts, including lots of hard to find gems. Kellan talks about how Wooden Tooth Records got started, and what advice he’d give to those looking to start their own businesses.
