Rolling Stone released it's list of the "25 Best Record Stores in the U.S." today, and three Chicago shops made the cut. We were impressed--but also felt the need to make our own list.
While many young consumers ditched their CDs and now head to the iTunes store to buy music--diehard music fans have not stopped visiting their local record stores. Vinyl collectors are very particular about where the goods are, and Chicago is lucky enough to have many sweet stores to choose from.
There is something special about listening to music on a record player, especially as the leaves begin to fall. Perhaps visiting your local record store will inspire you to bring more vinyl into your life--and hopefully our list can help you on that journey.
