Here's my experience... I made the guy a fair offer at his online store. I even upped my offer, but Instead of replying to me, he just entered my order (Discogs) at his FULL PRICE. He never counter offered or replied at all. I was forced to ask him to cancel my order which evidently upset him. When I shared my experience, he gave me a negative rating saying that I was dirty & unfair. Me? You be the judge. I don't spend my money with people who deal this way. _______________________________________________________________________ Now the guy is flat out smearing me. I offered him $10... still have the script from Discogs... I never threatened nor retaliated as he says.. just told the truth on this review. That's what Google reviews are for, right? What kind of merchant gets into this kind of conflict with his customers?

This customer used the threat of negative feedback to get a $17.00 record for $7.00 and because I didn't agree to it he retaliated with this negative Google review.

BUYER BEWARE! This seller is not only unresponsive to simple inquiries once you pay for your order but is also extremely slow to ship. Once my order arrived 2 out of the 5 records I ordered were visually & audibly damaged contrary to the description the seller stated them to be in. REVIEWER BEWARE! Though seller sees no reason to respond to questions pertaining to an order they are quite quick to send out a shitty response to your review.

All items are fully guaranteed on my online site and in my store. A full refund was offered.

I love The Record Collector. There is a wide selection of vinyl which is unusual to find these days. They also have amazing shows on the weekends. If you love rock and roll, you will definitely love this store. I know I do!!!

In my opinion- records were way overpriced compared to other places. no bargain racks (maybe one crate on the floor) and practically nothing is priced below $10, even mediocre records. The Morrisville, PA store had a much wider vinyl selection as well as more 12" singles, which the new store does not have. Records are stuffed in shelves and hard to browse. I'd also encourage you to carefully examine the record conditions as they are not as strict and careful grading them as say Princeton Record Exchange. Out of town, better to shop online.

The store had a pretty good selection of classic rock, metal, blues/soul/jazz, and modern rock records. Friendly staff and decent prices. Only complaint would be that the store seems to be a bit disorganized.

Cute little place in a cute little town. A small used section, at around $5-$6 range, not much worthwhile. They had an additional $1 tables, but all the discs were in the plastic frame holders jammed into multiple milk crates. Sadly, I did not have the time to dig through them. They have a good selection of new CDs – some of the bands and titles surprised me. Their vinyl selection was of a good size as well. Though I was only there about 15 minutes and did not pick up with anything, my visit was a pleasure to this good neighborhood music store.
