CDs, Records & Tapes Retail
Retail stores that sell CDs, records, and tapes often have websites associated with them where customers can also purchase items online. Compact discs (CDs) are plastic audio discs that are circular in nature. They record, store, and play back audio and computer data. Records and tapes are the predecessors of CDs. Records are large vinyl discs that require a turntable and needle to operate. And tapes are cassettes that feature a magnetic tape containing music. CDs began overtaking the music scene in the 1990s, while the decade or so before that was dominated by cassettes. Retailers within malls and stand-alone music shops sell CDs, records, tapes, LPs, and DVDs. Many have a niche, such as vintage items like old video tapes, 8MM film, and vinyl albums. Some retail stores convert cassette tapes to CDs, or 8MM and VHS film to DVD. Retail stores may also venture into the realm of stereo systems, storage systems, MP3 players, blank CDs, and even promo materials. All sorts of musical styles can be found on CDs, from country and hip hop to rock and indie. Entertainment junkies can head to either a local independently-owned music shop to pick up vintage compilation tapes, or they can head to their local national chain music store for the latest CDs. The advantage to small music shops is their likely availability of rare and used media items. Some cater to DJs, who like to purchase old-school vinyl albums for their audio mixes. While CDs are relatively still expensive, some tapes and albums can be had for cheap. You just have to do the research and paw through racks at local music stores. You can also find retail CDs, records, and tapes stores online for added convenience in buying song tracks.
