At least 70% of my collection has come from this local shop. Todd and Melissa are amazing extremely helpful when looking for a specific item. The shop itself is organized and clean (for those worried about covid and sanitizer bottles are located at the front to use). During Record Store Days things can become a little hectic even then the staff is still friendly.If you’re looking for more foreign music though I’d recommend checking out their sister store International Grove Records 280 E Main St Unit 116
I recently found Rainbow and I am in LOVE with the people and the store. Melissa is very knowledgeable, kind and helpful. This lady knows every inch of the store and was able to help me fine what I was looking for. Wish I could give more than 5 stars! Thanks for all you do and for great service.
Rainbow Records should be listed in guidebooks (do they still make those?) for the Delaware Valley area. A total pillar of the community whose support for artists and other businesses is unparalleled, Rainbow also carries a diverse selection of records, tapes, CDs, and one-of-a-kind local art that makes it truly unique.Being a frequent Rainbow patron when I lived in Delaware actually had a massive impact on my music taste by opening me up to all kinds of music from around the world - a mission carried on by its nearby sister store International Groove Records, which is also a can't-miss. You can find everything from the latest releases to rare grails to beloved classics, often cheaper than you'd find elsewhere. Even after moving out of state I still try to come by when I can - and the people who work there are brilliant, friendly, and the kindest folks you could hope to meet.
Best record store in the area! Everything is clearly organized by genre to make the shopping experience easy with lots of new and used selections every visit! Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend for everyone from new to veteran collectors!
Rainbow is super welcoming store with a great selection of stuff to choose from and the staff is equally as great, there to help you with anything you might need. Rainbow is also extremely supportive of the local artists and other social causes in the area and is an all around great place to shop
