Dropped off two older record players the beginning of December 2022 for miscellaneous repairs. Both belonged to my mother, who had passed away, and I wanted them back in working order.Stephanie, the super informative and pleasant clerk, let me know that the owner (who does the repairs) wouldn't be in until mid-December. That was completely okay with me, as they had been out of service for some time.Received a text from Chris (I'm guessing the owner) on Christmas Eve letting me know that both players were ready for pick up and did some cleaning and maintenance. He advised that some other repairs were needed and parts also. I asked him if he would do the repairs, and he was pleased to do so! He me me know that both would be ready for pickup on Wednesday instead.I returned this past Wednesday, and Stephanie greeted me and almost remembered exactly which two players were mine! The pricing for the repairs, cleaning, and parts was extremely reasonable! I will absolutely return for vinyl purchases and repairs of my equipment! I'm happy to have someone local that does these repairs! Thank you to both Chris and Stephanie! I'll continue to sing your praises! I'm glad to have both of my mom's players back functional!🎶🎵

Stopped in while on vacation. Great shop! Multiple listening stations, plus they will ultrasonically clean any record you buy.

I was disappointed. Prices were overboard for a lot of mass market scratched up, cover falling apart vinyl. The store would be big time improved by a stricter appreciation of condition and quality.


I've been to many record stores in the northeast, this one compares favorably. Smallish selection of LPs, but it's pretty nicely curated. Mostly used, which I prefer over new vinyl. Found some real gems, and in most cases pristine condition. Prices seemed very fair. CDs also which I declined to peruse but others seemed happy, one guy bought a stack, including a Nirvana cd. Turntable listening tables to playtest LPs - not that many record stores actually have that! Young lady working was cheery, friendly and very helpful, a nice change from the stereotypical curmudgeonly record store proprietor lol. Sonically cleans records on request. Vintage turntables & receivers for sale too - I was tempted. Nice store!

Really nice store. Excellent selection. Chris, the owner is a very nice guy also. Knows his stuff! Hope to get there again soon.
