Reviews of The Vinyl Frontier in Carrollton, GA
This store has great potential yet they constantly ruin it by putting records out w/writing & sharpie coloring on lp jackets & asking $12.00- $22.00 for it!or putting an lp out w/ NO COVER @ all & attempting to charge $9.00 for it, like the Alice Cooper lp pictured, I have repeatedly brought this to the attention of different clerks working, it is no mistake, A sad sad pracitice that is unacceptable.On the other hand or + side, the store has a lot of new reissue albums that are comparatively priced to other record stores.if you live in the area it's worth visiting for that.The store is very clean, & has a restroom available to customers.The clerks are all friendly and nice.The used records are absolutely overpriced and in rough condition mostly, most of the time there's a lot of duplication in the stock, 5 or 6 copies of the Same album and again condition.I understand stores must possess more than one copy of the Same album but usually the process involves choosing the best copy and putting it out for customers ( keeping back stock elsewhere) this store seems to just slap whatever they have out with a big price tag on it.a little bit of attention could turn this place into a decent record store.I have taken graffiti records to the cash register shown them to the clerks, brought it to their attention hoping they would do away with it, giving them the benefit of a doubt that it is an honest mistake, the clerk's told me that they would "inform the owner" and take care of it, but when I go back to the store the graffiti albums are back out for public consumption.. this practice is a big turn-off for me and makes me not want to visit this store.
Me and a friend went here to just see what they had. The employees were extremely nice and helpful. I was able to get two Weezer albums and a Beatles album. The albums I bought were in perfect condition. Also the store is really well decorated and they had cool music playing in the store.10/10 Will return soon. :)
I'm trying to build a vintage collection of albums and this place was a great start! I love the variety and selection of different genres of music and customer service was great. I plan on visiting again in the future.
I have never felt compelled to leave a Google review until now, but this place was just incredible. I was in the area on business from Atlanta and decided to stop and browse on my lunch break. They had an incredible selection of new and used records, and they were arranged and organized in a creative way by both genre (rock, pop, country, etc.) and sub genre (prog, blues rock, metal, alt country, bluegrass.) The guy working there said it was so that smaller artists don't get lost among the bigger genres, which I absolutely love. You can tell that a lot of care went into this place.I went in just to browse on a lunch break and ended up spending more money than I probably should have. That's not to say that the shop is overpriced. I'd actually say the opposite. Especially during the pandemic, I've noticed a lot of record stores lately (especially in the ATL area) are hiking prices of their used vinyl. Eg: a store in Buckhead was asking $60 for a used copy of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On." Ridiculous! But nothing so egregious at this place, where I was able to find a copy of the same record in good condition for $15. And if all of this isn't enough, they had free stickers and fun sized chocolate bars at the register. You love to see it.Absolute grand slam of a record store. If I lived in the area I'd be a regular.
