Even though we're living in the digital age when it comes to music doesn't mean you can't relive the good old days. Instead of doing your holiday spending on Black Friday, stretch your bucks on Small Business Saturday and shop around for vinyl records and other vintage music items at these five Las Vegas signature record stores.
1216 S. Rainbow Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89146
This go-to store for music and pop culture lovers has been a staple in Las Vegas for many, many years. It's so popular that it moved to a new location with more than 2,000 square feet of extra space for its large selection of CDs, vinyl records, DVDs, video games, comics, books, toys, posters, and collectibles. Zia Record's has a second location near Eastern Avenue and Flamingo Road. Get ready to shop til you drop as Zia Records is open from 10 a.m. to midnight daily.
11th Street Records
1023 Fremont St.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
Located in Fremont East District in Downtown Las Vegas, this hidden gem features a range of vinyl records to browse through. As far as the variety in genres, you name it they have it, however, the store is organized alphabetical and not by genre like most stores. While you're there, stop and admire the walls lined with first print records—a must-have for true old school music fans. Fun fact: There's a recording studio right behind the store.
572 S. Decatur Blvd.
Las Vegas NV 89107
This mom-and-pop music store offers vinyl records, cassettes, CDs and collectible memorabilia at affordable prices plus a variety of turntables and instruments such as guitars lining the walls. With a vast collection of music from various decades and must-have collectibles, plan on spending at least a couple of hours browsing around the shop. You can even sell and trade in records, too.
300 E. Sahara Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89104
Record City has two locations with rare vinyl records, CDs, DVDs, and a wide selection of collectible memorabilia. At both locations, you'll find plenty of limited edition items not available in retail stores, which makes it so unique. Record City’s second store is located near Lamb Boulevard and Charleston Boulevard on the east side of town.
