Weighing in on the Bookman's stores in Arizona. I enjoy going through their stores as I love reading books as well as buying tunes. It always has me shaking my head regarding how they make it. I say that for this reason: Over the last two dozen visits in their stores I haven't seen anyone pay cash, it always has been credit slips. It wasn't that long ago that they had A and B trade separated, they now have it set up in "just trade." IMO their book sales have been slumping as well. The problem with vinyl is how you have too many people with the price gun. The 19th and Northern store needs to have a sidewalk sale on their vinyl in the worst way. They also need to have one person who has extensive knowledge on vinyl handle the purchasing. Occasionally you could find a gem in the bins cheap, but even if you don't you would expect the basic three to four dollar selection to be properly graded. The Mesa location IMO doesn't have that problem as the lp buyer for that store knows condition and what to look for regarding lp inserts, re-issue pressings, etc. But 70's lp's like Fogelberg, Streisand, Foreigner, Styx, Journey, etc., etc. should not be over four dollars with the exception of WLP's, radio shows, import pressings, MFSL's, etc. The Mesa location surprises me as to the amount of vinyl in their bins, looked to me like the Northern store had 50% more then the Mesa store. One thing about the Mesa store--there's always been problems with people spare changing out in the parking lot, the last time I was there there were no problems. But it sure has been a problem in the past!
