    This record store is the real deal. Listen to anything in the store, get great advice from the helpful staff, and support an independent Boise business. So grateful this place is here.

    The metal and punk are mixed. So you have to dig through a lot of garbage for some good punk... but atleast it's there.

    Yo! We've finally taken ownership of our foursquare page and aim to actually use it. Hopefully, at some point Mayor McCheese will be mayor of The Record Exchange.
