The Way It Is

Anna Brozek recently moved to Salt Lake City with husband Chris Brozek to open the Slow Train record store on 300 South. She gave her initial impressions of the city:

It’s a nice, clean downtown, but I think it’s sad that everything shuts down on Sundays. Like, there’s actually nothing going on, so really you’re down to a one-day weekend when it should be a two-day weekend. A whole day is gone. We were open, and people just don’t even consider coming down because they’re like, “Oh, it’s Sunday and [Slow Train is] downtown. They must be closed.” I think I’d like to see that change, but it’s a nice, clean functional downtown.
