So here's a post-script to my original write-up.
As mentioned I bought a bunch of LPs right before Christmas and was frustrated to discover a bunch of them had skips. Of the ten LPs I bought, literally five were flawed. Anyhow, Itook them back and because I was in a rush, didn't have time to find replacements. The store clerk was nice enough to gave me a gift certificate for the value of the returns.
So some eight months later I finally got around to going back and the first thing I did was see if they would honor my gift certificate. Eight months is a pretty long time so I was skeptical they would accept it. Anyhow, I had the original sales receipt and the certificate and the store clerk agreed to honor it. Kudos to store.
- They now have a designated parking space for customers on the side of the building (1 space).
- The store is as small as ever, but has way more stuff packed into it than the last time I was there.
- They are rearranging the layout, moving the check out desk to the side of the store, though it won't make much difference given the limited overall space.
- Prices are still very high - common garage sale LPs are listed at $8 - $9 and higher (if I could charge similar prices on my inventory I could retire).
- They mix old and reissues together, so look closely when you pick something up.
