NEW YORK (PIX11) -- The owner of Fifth Avenue Record Shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn is closing its doors on December 31, according to the owner.

After nearly 50 years in two different Brooklyn locations, Tony Mignone said he has to close his doors. His lease was up in August, but he said his landlord gave him an extension until the end of the year.

"I'll miss the people, the customers," said Mignone.

He says he always knew when his lease would be up.

While mostly everything is for sale from record players to cassettes,  Mignone told us he is definitely packing some country music with him.

We reached out to the landlord for a comment, but did not hear back.
