Came in here after reading the reviews expecting the WORST. I just had to check it out myself. I was ready to have an awful experience but I can't lie it was genuinely a good experience. Maybe I got lucky but the owner was very welcoming. He was a little intense but it wasn't the worst experience. I'm actually really surprised with the rare records and cool posters and stickers he had. All around 5 star experience! (Surprisingly)
Steve is an amazing wealth of music history his knowledge on music and musicians is unparalleled. Every time I go there I always find two or three records I needed but did not know I wanted. His deameanor and conversations are always wonderful. I could not ask for a more eclectic and down home place to spend a couple hours surrounded by the music I love amd people who love music.
Great record selection. Owner was a bit rude. The records were highly overpriced from either $20-$50 more. I asked the owner about a specific record and he didn’t even look up from his phone to answer my question and immediately said No No No and continued on his phone.
Absolutely wonderful experience! Offers a great selection of music and some rare finds. Steve absolutely made my day, I’ve been searching for this record for quite some time. I’m coming back soon! Thank you again!
Rang the doorbell. Guy comes to the door, opens it and says “come in”. I ask if they’re open because the door was locked. He says “I’ve been operating this way for the past two and a half years. You tell me what’s of interest to you, and I direct you to where it is.” I ask if he has any job openings. He says to me “we like to hire people who know what they’re talking about, not people who ask questions that indicate they’ve never set foot in the store. There’s tons of other places around here, they’ll hire you in a heartbeat.” Never going back. If that guy’s name is Steve, I get why people can’t deal with him. Feel bad for his dog.
