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 a-hard-days-night-george-9) 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.

EDIT:

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.

Hey why not still call ’em “record stores”? Many of them sell actual vinyl!

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”.
