    I found one the other day. I fell on my knees and thanked Jesus right there in the "Rock/Pop" section.

    I second that.

    I used to go at least once a week to pick up new music and talk to the cute cashier girl.

    There used to be a huge one in a south suburb. In the 80s there were ashtrays all over the place. Largest selection of records. Used to find rare imports. They sold bongs and hitter boxes.

    Loved the place, it was called Crow's Nest.
