Does anyone in this forum actually go into a store to buy music? If you do, where do you go?
If I go to a shopping mall with my wife, I make it a point of browsing through whatever record store (yes, I still call them record stores – deal with it ) is in residence while she shops for clothes. Unless I come across a used disc that I can’t live without, I don’t buy as much in-store as I used to. I pretty much buy my discs on Amazon through this site to support Joe’s server costs. When I lived in Maine, I loved going into Bull Moose as they have an extensive used disc selection. Knowing that Macca is remastering/reissuing his catalogue, I bought a few of his discs second hand for very little money, just to get them into my iPod until the new ones are released. I know I can get them on iTunes, but the used discs are much less expensive and I get all the album art/liner notes to have and to hold without having to fire up an electronic device.

I bought maybe a dozen-or-so CDs (and as many DVDs) last year at my crappy local HMV, the only record store within walking distance (I don’t drive).
That made me smile – thanks.
To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Never “music store” – that’s where you buy instruments. And “CD store” doesn’t take vinyl into account. (Or DVD/blu-ray but that’s a whole other kettle of fish.)
“Record Store” is good enough for me, “record” just being another word for “recordings”.
