Amazing CD selection. Mellow and thoughtful help.
Outstanding. Don't expect to find many bargains in here, BUT... the inventory is well curated, well organized, and most everything (vinyl and CD's) is VG+ or higher, so in the end the stuff is high quality and priced fairly. I buy mostly CD's from them (they are picky--- kept behind the counter and not a scratch or scuff on any of them) and every time I come in here, I walk out with EXACTLY what I was looking for (today- a TFF, a Metallica and two Flaming Lips CD's). Thanks guys! 👍
Very neat and organized. Small shop but they have a lot of great records including rare bootlegs. They still write out receipts by hand and figure out tax with a calculator. Not a store for short people but I'm not short so the 5 stars remain.
I love Planet Records! I was in the area and was exploring different stores for CDs, looking for a specific rock band and to no avail. Finally I came to Planet Records and I found what I was looking for almost instantly! I love the way they keep all the CDs organized by picture/booklet and instead keep the actual discs in the back, it allows you to look through everything so much more efficiently and keeps the discs out of harm's way too. I don't think any other record store I've been to so far has organized their discs in this way. Fair prices too!
I came across this store when searching for a place that buys used DVDs. Wicked chill store. They have new and old music, hard to find DVDs and a plethora of records. Although it's a small store, as I looked over many different titles and artists from past to present, the huge array of memories it brought up made me want to spend the day in there. The only suggestion I'd have is to share a space with a local coffee shop and add a little live music from local artists. But still a great local establishment with very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful employees.
