Record stores in the greater Puget Sound area

As with vinyl itself, those rumors you hear surrounding the so-called death of the record store have proven themselves to be greatly exaggerated, In fact, retail record stores seem to be springing up like weeds just about everywhere you look these past few years. From the bigger indie retail players like Easy Street and Silver Platters, to the more remote hole-in-the-wall places like Stargazer Records, music retail is indeed still alive and well in the Northwest. 


Below you will find a small, by no means complete, but well represented selection of some of the more interesting shops we found. While we can't necessarily vouch for all of them, we think you'll find most worthy of a visit.
