J&R Music and Computer World is back in business.

The electronics retailer, which closed its location at 15 Park Row after 43 years in business, is opening a “J&R Express” boutique inside Century 21’s flagship store. The downtown location is about a block away from J&R’s old address.

The shop inside Century 21 will be 1,500 square feet.

In April, after the store closed, L+M Development Partners paired up with the owners of J&R to redevelop the retail properties on that same block.

The J&R boutique is slated to open in October. The store will carry portable electronics, computer gadgets, CDs, movies as well as vinyl. J&R will also hold special music events and meet and greets at the new location. [NYP] — Claire Moses
