If you've ever wandered into The Record Finder, initial impression are 'what an amazing store, stocked to the roof!'. I beleive the reason WHY they're stocked to the roof is they probably never actually sell anything. Like most other reviewers, my issue is with their pricing. Expect to pay (or not pay) 2 to 5 times over the highest price that a comparative item has ever sold for on Discogs. I was in there today and a surf rock compilation from the 1970's was stickered with the description of 'surface wear and crackle, sold as is' - price tag, $130. That same record is being sold on discogs by 2 different Australian sellers in VG+ condition for $50. Their electronic section is quite vast, however breaks/house/trance/dnb singles from the early 2000's that command prices under $10 are priced between $25-50. I am not sure how it still exists but whilst I am glad it does, it's main purpose for me serves as a physical library of things I look at in person then go and buy elsewhere online. Staff are innatentive and leave you alone. If you do buy something they're somewhat awkward. A great example of why online shopping flourishes.
The best record store in Australia, if I needed anything, we called each other and said hope all is well, Mark, Karen and Grant are the best owners, I been through records at this store since the early 90s and when it used to be OPP target.
This is an excellent place for record enthusiasts. Although I personally didn't purchase any record from this store since I had already bought from some other store in Perth and was done with my budget. But this place has a great vibe. The owners were extremely kind and helpful as I tried to browse and see if I could find something with the leftover budget I had. They were kind enough to take me thru the store and help me find records. I really really wanted to purchase from this store but couldn't since a couple of records I liked were out of my budget. Hopefully i get to visit Perth and I shall come and visit this store and get my records. Lovely store and thanks once again to the owners for being so kind.
