DISKID was brought to life on June 16, 1987. 
Since August 2009 DISKID is being run by me (Hank Monteban) and my partner Antoinette Kroon.
From our early youth on we 've been collectors of records.


vechtstraat zz800During this long period Diskid really flourished. Within a couple of years already, we were able to expand and remodel.

And then the Cd emerged. Reviewers of pop magazines and newspapers were being approached. They continuously delivered neat piles of records to this day.
Antoinette discovered the shop in 1998 en bought her first Lp at Diskid.
After some 15 years, surprise surprise, we moved to a smaller house, but hey, it was situated in the inner city!



THE DISKID STORY Part 2: In the Spoelstraat ( 13 years )

Our customers themselves helped us out quite brilliantly when we moved to the Spoelstraat 14 and so we could open behind the Bieb (library) within a week's time. In 2009 the relationship with Antoinette also resulted in a partnership within Diskid.  We thought it would be fun to organize a recordfair. Finally it became  six. Two editions in De Broerenkerk (2009 and 2010), the one in De Grote Kerk(2011) and the three in De Weijenbelt (2013, 2014 and 2016)  The sixth and final  edition of our international record & cd fair on may 28 had over 800 paying visitors.  There were dealers from Holland as well as from everywhere  in the world and a relatively large group of non-commercial stallholders.  What's also unique was our approach: equal opportunities for everyone! Before we started the fair there was no possibility for purchasing  anything.  Our fairs were loved by both visitors and stallholders. We were approached to switch to a much larger location. Instead of that we decided to stop and to put our energy into the store, because of the sharply increased interest after the move to the Sassenstraat in August 2015. 



On September 2015 we started in the Sassenstraat which is a top spot and the best one ever for us. The feeling of having a good time in the bigger shop is quite a relief - for some it's a warm bath. The store was built up in a way that intensifies the *vinyl-experience* . Regularly we receive compliments like “This is not an ordinary record-store, it's a candy store in music heaven”.

We don't just get local people in the store, they're from all over the globe. At least 50 percent of them are from outside Zwolle. We're quite pleased with being so close to the customer.

In 2015 we got into the top 10 again of *Best Vinyl stores of the Benelux* ( about 250 stores! ), compiled by LPvinyl, the oldest vinyl platform in the Dutch language, up four places, at number two! In 2016 we succeeded to retain this fantastic second position. In 2017 we finally managed  to reach the coveted first position. In 2018 we won again by far and decided not to participate anymore.  Time for  a new winner..
