LOGAN SQUARE — Saki Records, which has called Logan Square home since 2010, is closing.

The independently-owned record shop, 3716 W. Fullerton Ave., will close by Dec. 1, according to a letter released by ownership.

"At our current location, saki is unsustainable. Rather than try to find new space, move and reconstitute, we have decided the best thing is to shut down and move on to something new," the letter reads.

CTD Ltd., the record distribution company tied to the shop, will also cease operations and "has already begun the process of winding down operations," according to the letter.

The distribution company was founded in 1996 as a record label, but ended up moving to a distribution-only platform as digital music became more popular.

In addition to selling vinyl records and zines, Saki frequently hosted in-store performances, record release parties and other events.

Ahead of the closure, the shop is offering "big sales" on records.
