The wait is almost over! Cactus Records & Gifts just announced a soft opening of its new location.

On February 6, Cactus Records closed its downtown location after 35 years. The building where Cactus Records was located was listed for sale. Owner, Mike 'Bueno' Good initially hoped to purchase the building, but the price was too far out of reach.

Bueno began searching for a new location immediately and found the perfect location and was able to purchase the building. The new Cactus Records & Gifts isn't downtown anymore, but it's close. It's located at 2740 West Main St. Unit B, near the Montana Science Center and Rook's Games and More.

Employees are still working to put the final pieces in place, but Cactus Records is open for business, according to a post on the Cactus Records Facebook page.

Cactus Records is loved by many in the Bozeman community, including myself. As a collector of vinyl, I've spent quite a bit of money there throughout the years. To assist with the move to a new location, many local Bozeman residents donated money via GoFundMe. The money raised helped employees stay on their feet during the transition to a new location.

We're excited to see Cactus Records & Gifts continue its longstanding legacy in Bozeman, and are happy that the new location is open. If you're looking for the perfect gift for the music lover in your life, or want to find interesting products that you can't find anywhere else, stop by the new location.

Make sure to thank Bueno for working so hard to make sure that Cactus Records will continue to serve the Bozeman community for years to come.
