Its chief executive, Mike Coupe, believes it’s “the next big thing”.
Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours is its top-selling album at the moment.
I haven’t seen vinyl in my local Sainsbury store yet, only at my local Tesco.

Browsing through the CDs in my local Tesco store I noticed one priced at £1. Which seemed too good a bargain to miss.
It turned out to be a single CD released by Tesco to raise money for its two main charities: The British Heart Foundation, and Diabetes UK.
Both those mean something to me so it had to go in my basket.
The CD is by a family called the Neales who appeared on a TV talent show, obviously a father and his sons.
Is it any good? Well it’s not my cup of tea but that’s because I thought it might be a cover of the fabulous Four Tops song.
But judge for yourself -after you’ve put for your hand in your pocket for a measly £1. It’s for good causes!
We’ve heard that vinyl is making a comeback with its own chart lists (NB audio-cassettes are coming back too).
So it’s nice to see my local Tesco supermarket stocking some alongside the narrow range of CDs that they stock.
These are obviously safe bets with the likes of Adele, The Eagles, Prince, Fleetwood Mac, The Stone Roses, AC DC, Guns and Roses. Priced between £12 and £17 these will be attractive to people who’ve kept the faith and kept their turntables.
