    A gorgeous throwback to a sorely missed era. Alt rock, indie music and some rare classics in vinyl are among their inventory. There’s also an in house green pain clinic.

    One of the biggest record stores I've visited. Good if you are looking for new tracks, not very user friendly and rich in collection if you are looking for older tracks and treasure hunting

    Great selection of vinyl. Prices are a little high but you can't beat the selection offered in this store. Don't park in the McDonalds next door. They tow.

    Of course their collection is fantastic. They even have hard to find anime DVDs. More importantly though, don't miss the free live concerts from up and coming artists.

    Huge selection with rare stuff on the walls. Jazz vinyl section is very well rounded, a lot of new represses and original pressings. Check used records they have in sleeves & new arrivals!

    Skateboarding may not be a crime, but shoplifting is and everyone is a suspect. Lots of stuff yet somehow they're always out of what I want. Pricey.

    Leave your backpack at the entrance and spend a serious amount of time browsing the solid "used" sections. The place is huge! They also have video games and movies
