Both vinyl records purchased stuck while playing, the needle gets stuck and just plays over and over the same part.I tried cleaning the discs but it did not help. No issue with my other records. Disappointing as this shop prices vinyl at a premium to other shops. I also found the staff unfriendly.

this is the place to go for hard-to-find records! they have boxes and boxes of vinyls for all genres! a bit expensive, IMO, but the family running the shop seems to know what they're doing.. a nice store overall!

This place has more to dig through than every record store combined down where I live. Nicely categorized, easy to find what I was looking for, and a great selection of $5 and $10 rock. Also found some CD's from my younger days that were half-priced. Chatted with the owner for a bit and got a great rundown of places... More
