Where Can You Still Find Vinyl in the Mid Columbia?
Vinyl has been making a big comeback. Since many music stores are only selling CDs and most people are now buying their music in mp3 format, where can you still find vinyl? Here are three of the top stores in the Mid Columbia that specialize in selling records.
1.) Adventures Underground
Located at 1391 George Washington Way in The Uptown Shopping Center of Richland, Adventures Underground is one of the only stores in the Tri-Cities still selling records. They sell both used and new records and receive new shipments at least three times a week. Adventures Underground has a big collection of records ranging from The Beatles (who are their best selling-selling artist) to newer underground artists. If they don’t have the record you want in their store, you can also order it through them. Adventures Underground also participates in Record Store Day and Black Friday’s Mini Record Store Day. It’s a locally-owned business and they also sell comics, books, Japanese treats, games, models, and hobby supplies.
