    For anyone in the Portland, OR area, Everyday Music's Beaverton location will be closing in October. :cry:

    Over the past few years, I've had pretty good experiences finding OOP/uncommon stuff there, and I've always found the “staff picks” on display to be interesting and well-curated.

    They are having a Labor Day weekend sale (25% off all used CDs), so this would probably be a great time to visit/stock up before they close.

    Shame. I worked at the Beaverton Tower Records/Video back in the 90's. I don't like this trend.

    had the rug pulled out from under 'em, lease-wise. at least we'll have another liquor store to occupy that space!

    only place in town i've found a LZII RL cut for a normal price in the used bin. i've found great new used arrivals almost weekly here, and to piggy back on what @ramonesfan mentioned: it's the only EM that has a great display with "staff picks" and highlights from their recent used buys. i will seriously miss my friday visit to this place.

    they'll be moving their inventory to the other two locations, but the fella there said they have no plans to liquidate stuff on-hand or anything. sale going on now is company-wide.

    Damn, that sucks. This was the most convenient location for me to visit, by far. (I live in Southwest.)

    Aside from downtown, what independent record stores are left on the west side of the river?

    One of the employees told me that a group of them might try to continue on independently in some fashion in the Beaverton area...they had an email sign-up list going to keep folks up-to-date on any future plans. Probably a long-shot, but I'll keep my fingers crossed!

    several have popped up over the years only to shut down quickly. only thing left really are vintage & consignment shops. lotsa folks peddle their vinyl at them.

    Portlanders, sorry to hear about one of your record stores closing, as that always sucks and I feel your pain.

    By the way, have any of you ever run into Gino Vannelli while you were out and about, as he now lives in Portland?

    they're out there! unfortunately with shops like this one closing they'll be more of a challenge to stumble across casually.

    It was seriously a drag to hear about this a while back. As a resident of Hillsboro, they were definitely the closest place for me to buy vinyl, and with my weird range of musical likes, they somehow managed to nail anything I might be interested in, whether vintage / obscure, or the modern stuff. This part of the PacNW region really needs a place like that EM in particular, as the folks who staffed that store always seemed a bit more vested in the old school vibe of a record shop, and I'm saying that having worked at places like Disc-O-Mat and Tower records in NYC back in the '80s. I really do hope they were serious about trying to open a new place in the area, and I wouldn't mind being involved in that either, if it would help insure that those kinds of places don't all just vanish.

    This sucks. I used to travel to that area for business & would always look forward to spending a couple hours there.
