A local expert says
They boast about being the nation’s largest independent used record store, and they live up to it—this flagship spot is staggering in size and scope. It can be intimidating for even veteran record buyers, but you go there enough times and you begin to master the layout. If you’ve never been, it’s worth the pilgrimage just to witness it. Parking in the area is terrible. Luckily, the store has a lot underneath and, unless you’re coming at prime time on Saturday afternoon, odds are you can find a space without a huge hassle.

A popular tourist destination for music lovers — one of the last superstores selling vinyl records, videos, CDs and DVDs, both new and used. An offshoot of the original in Berkeley, CA
