Do you cherish the days of record stores? Do you have fond memories of Millenium Music? Want to know the story about how Millenium came to be and evolved into FeedYourPlayer.com, and later AbundaTrade? Check out the June issue of Inc. MagazineÂ to read the story of two Charleston businessmen adapting to the times.Â
For 15 years Kent Wagner andÂ business partner, Clayton Woodson, owned Millennium Music on the corner of King and Calhoun Streets. With the music industry going digitel, Millennium was faced with declining sales and launched a new venture called FeedYourPlayer.com in 2006, which offered customers the option to trade used CDs for iPods. FeedYourPlayer was a hit, and Wagner decided that his business would be more successful online. After closing the brick-and-mortar store in 2008, Wagner and Woodson launced AbundaTrade, which allows customers to exchange CDs for electronics like TVs, iPods and camcorders.Â
