I've had many great visits to this shop over the years. It has a charm like no other, partly because they have records and a very nice selection of HiFi Equipment, even cool lights for your music room! I received amazing customer service from the amazing Husband and Wife duo there. Aaron really cares about his customers and goes out of his way to make them happy. He helped me inspect a pair of speakers I had just purchased and even cleaned them up a bit. He also ran premium speaker cable from the speakers (for a small fee). He charged me a reasonable price for this service. I'm so happy stores like this still exist, they're a dying breed, especially record stores where the owners are happy to see you and help! Years ago Aaron's wife (I don't know her name) recommended an obscure record to me that was still sealed, I took a chance and absolutely loved it. You never know what gold you will find in this well organized, friendly shop. Go..go now!
I made the mistake of going in after hours when they were closed but the owner invited us in anyways. I was interested in purchasing a stereo receiver and he stayed and cleaned/tested the entire set up for us all when they were supposed to be closed. The shop is awesome. Attached is the pioneer receiver I got, it's probably 40 years old but is in near factory condition after he worked on it.
They were INCREDIBLY helpful in getting me set up with my first record player and sound system. He was very knowledgeable and very kindly answered all my newbie questions. There was no pressure to buy an expensive set up and I am SO happy with it.
Great place to spend time crate digging for records. Didn't see any rare or high priced items. If you're into classic rock this has a great selection. Tons of items $2.50 and under huge $1 section too. If you're looking for components they usually have quite a bit in stock. Very nice system available for customers to play records before buying!
This place is amazing. Give yourself enough time to go through all of the records, you won't be disappointed! Nice atmosphere and the owners were so nice! This was our first time here and we were impressed. We will be back!
