A great place to buy all kinds of records! I find something almost every time I visit. Also one of the best places to sell your records! I have sold hundreds of records here and always been given a fair price for them in cash or trade! Highly recommended.
Great shop. Friendly staff. The selection is great and varied. Even if you don’t find what you’re looking for ur going to find something you’ll want to take home.
When it comes to black music, the selection isn’t that great, but the store was super clean and the guy was very open to helping us find records! The area surrounding was a bit dirty as well.
One thing that sets this shop apart is that most of the stock has labels with detailed condition descriptions and grading, along with other helpful data. It's a smallish shop and doesn't have the deepest stock, but there's plenty of good stuff to check out. Good customer service too.
I love the way each record is so clearly labeled here– it makes it easy to quickly identify what you're looking at while flipping through them. Prices for new records are fair (maybe $1-2 more than Amazon, which is reasonable) and prices for used records are absolutely stellar, with many under $5. They also have a decent selection to choose from, though be warned that the vast majority is rock or rock-adjacent and I wouldn't come here expecting to see much mainstream pop, for example. There are some other genre sections (including records in other languages), but they're sparser. Lastly, I like that they carry records from local musicians. I'll definitely be back!
