Best of

the Twin Cities

Best CD Store (Used)


Don't listen to the rumors, people. Size matters. And when it comes to local used-CD stores, Cheapo is simply the biggest and best. The recent-arrival racks are a digger's dream, and the store offers no shortage of ways for shoppers to find that copy of Everclear's "Sparkle and Fade." Don't have time to let your fingers do the walking through the recent arrivals? No sweat—hangers-on are cycled out to the alphabetized racks, so finding a skuff copy of Rumours is as easy as pie. But the heart and soul of Cheapo is its landfill approach to the used discs that pour into the store by the bushel, seeking second life in your car stereo. Sure, you can find the discs you want to check off your list. But the true appeal of Cheapo is the grand search, where you'll unearth treasures you never knew you needed.
