Now-closed store. From the owner/founder: "I started Red Pets Records in Northfield, Minnesota, in 1991 to bring the plethora of interesting independent music to this college community. A year in, I reorganized as a consumer cooperative, bringing in ultimately over 100 members who received discounted prices and worked in the store to increase their discount. I like to say I thought of it as a retail operation with the soul of a nonprofit arts organization. I moved the store out of its storefront in 1996 and onto the Web, finally suspending sales operations in 1998."
