BEST CD STORE (USED) (1999)

Where would those of us whose need to consume, own, and collect exceeds our ability to earn, save, or budget be if not for the desperate addicts and promo-laden music journalists who stock Cheapo's bins? The old Best Buy location into which Cheapo recently relocated retains a slightly off-putting utilitarian vibe--the new store hasn't grown into its mammoth proportions just yet, like a gangly preteen still growing into his older brother's hand-me-downs, and their indiscriminate buying policy means you'll have to sift through a hefty bit of junk product to find a treasure. But Cheapo has never been about ambiance or convenience--it's been about selection, and you're more likely to find a disc here for under nine bucks than anywhere else in town. Bonus: it's a good bet you'll also be able to get some quick cash on a used-by-you disc that's of no earthly use to anyone.
