"We named the store after our dog," Adams said.
Lowe and Adams said it was actually fitting.
They were sitting at home one evening when someone sent them a photo of a Dalmation-American Boxer mix dog at the local animal shelter. The dog, Sullivan, was set to be put down unless someone came to claim him.
Both Lowe and Adams fell in love with the dog in the picture and went straight to the animal shelter to get him. He's been a beloved part of their family ever since.
They said they felt the same feeling about the storefront on Washington Street as they did with Sullivan the pooch.
While they live in Huntington, they think the East End's music and arts scene is the perfect fit for the store.
"We absolutely love the area," Adams said. "We're really excited about this."
They said they have already received a warm welcome from area businesses.
"Everyone we've talked to is like, 'Oh my God, this is a great idea, let us help you,' " Adams said.
Ric Cavender, East End Main Street executive director, said he's already talked to the pair about helping set up signage and advertising the business.
"I really think that it's a perfect fit for the neighborhood," Cavender said. "It's a good compliment to all the live music we have.
"I think it's the perfect time, and perfect location for that business," he said.
Lowe said he's not only going to have records in the store. He'll also have CDs, used DVDs and vintage music posters.
They will also sell record players, turntables and other parts to help people listen to the classic albums.
Lowe also plans to sell accessories for musical instruments. That way, if a performer playing at the Empty Glass breaks a string, they have a store nearby to purchase a replacement.
Lowe and Adams are planning a soft opening for the store on Saturday, May 11, to coincide with the East End Yard Sale.
They plan an official grand opening June 1, though the store will still be open between May 11 and then.
Lowe said he plans to be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, but said that could change depending on how customer traffic flows.
Most of the vinyl records will be priced under $10, depending on condition. But Lowe said some could end up being priced higher because of their value as collectors' items.
