Very disappointing on a few levels. Other reviews compared this place to actual "good" record shops ion Seattle and the NW. I disagree. They seemed to have a great selection of music that most people have never heard of. Good niche but it should be in addition to what is considered mainstream music.The young lady that was working there was a smart aleck which I did not appreciate either.That was my first visit and will be my last!
Really well-curated selection of local and national artists. Friendly and unobtrusive staff. Came in wondering and came out with three LPs. I have to go here every time I visit Anacortes.
Best record store I've ever been to, hands down. I don't say that lightly. I love Sonic boom and Easy St, and the amoeba stores in California are great. They all have larger selections than the Business, but none of them are as well curated or staffed. The only thing I would change is I wish it were closer to my house! Not really though, as the out-there location is part of the charm. Every record lover and hunter should put this on their bucket list.
The Business is one of a kind. It is an indie music hub and A-town gem. You feel cooler or more evolved just by entering the doors but not in a pretentious way. The owners are very kind and very helpful. If you like independent bookstores or want to dive deep into the local PNW music scene this is a must stop for you when visiting Anacortes, WA. Lots of vinyl but also cds and zines, etc. I just bought the most beautiful tarot card deck there with artwork created by a local artist.
Great Vinyl, helpful and knowledgeable staff. They helped me find the perfect gift!
