I’m a big fan of Zia Records, I can explore at one of their locations and always find something cool and unique for a good price. I’m also a fan of their booths at conventions as they usually have a pretty cool theme to them each year. Zia is taking it a step further with an actual pop up shop during Phoenix Fan Fusion this year.
The pop up shop will be located at the newly renovated Arizona Center (one block north of the Phoenix Convention Center) which is presented in partnership with Rebel Lounge and FilmBar. The shop will be open from 1PM – 9PM starting on Wednesday, May 22 and the last day being Monday, May 27.

“After nearly 40 years in business, Zia Records is finally coming to Downtown Phoenix. The independent chain of pop culture shops is already known Valley-wide, but May 22-27th, downtown Phoenicians and Phoenix Fan Fusion attendees will have the chance to experience Zia Records at downtown’s newly-revamped Arizona Center, presented in partnership with the Rebel Lounge and FilmBar.
“The recent changes at the Arizona Center have really blown us away,” says Zia Records general manager Jarrett Hankinson. “We jumped at the chance to be a part of Downtown Phoenix’s vibrant scene during Phoenix Fan Fusion weekend and on Memorial Day.”
In addition to special events—including parties, DJ performances, and live music—the Zia Records Arizona Center pop-up will feature vinyl records, comics, collectibles, and exclusive Zia Records merchandise.
As a bonus, Zia Records’ collaboration with FilmBar and Rebel Lounge will result in a multimedia lounge at Arizona Center, featuring beer from local craft breweries and audio/visual programming by FilmBar, with proceeds benefiting Rosie’s House, a not-for-profit music academy for children committed to playing a pivotal role in a child’s future and strengthening our community.
“The Rebel Lounge always enjoys working with Zia Records,” says Stephen Chilton of the Rebel Lounge. “When we heard about their pop-up store, it was a no brainer to work with them on it. Hopefully we can bring something great to this spot.”
This special event offers downtown Phoenicians a chance to buy, sell, and trade at Zia—and feature more surprises. To follow along with Zia’s progress, view store hours, and more event announcements, follow the hashtag #DTPHXZIA on social media. “
