    All the buildings in that shopping center have the windows and doors guarded by iron bars, and it's right next to a head shop. Nuff said. Not what I'm used to, however like I said, absolutely great store and I'll definitely be back again.

    Not all. There's also a church right behind it.

    ...also a dry cleaners, restaurants, florist, banks, jewelry stores, grocery stores etc... Not sure what you're point is.

    Next time take the elevator. There's more than two stores in that mall. :)

    Vinyl store across the street from Big Apple Books on Federal (about a block south, on the east side of the street). (looks like an apartment building)

    General LPs $3, some bins of higher priced LPs. Lots of current NEW LPs. Caters to disco/dance 12" eps. Inventory moves, so when a new collection arrives, it gets picked over, then reduced in price.

    Went a few days ago to Radio Active when I was passing through Ft Lauderdale.

    Staff were friendly and helpful and had some luck in the new arrivals section with some Neil Young LPs.

    There's a big selection of used LPs but many of G/VG grading. From the 25 or so I might have bought I only took 7 due to the scratched up vinyl I found. Even those I took some were gambles that they might clean up with a few rounds in the old Spin Clean.

    Prices are reasonable overall and the store is nicely laid out.

    Worth a look if you have an hour or two to go through things.

    There's also a small shop in Orlando in Artegon mall, forgot them name it might be R n R Records, small selection of old LPs that are overpriced for the grading.

    The owner or manager was very friendly and they had a cool selection of comic books if you're into that sort of thing.

    Does anyone remember the name of the record store in Miami that was on US1/S Dixie Hwy across the street from the University Metro Rail station? It was in a strip mall called University Shopping Center that is still there. Not far from Ponce De Leon high school. I think a pizza shop or a pack and ship place has taken it's spot in the mall.

    There was a Sound Advice there years ago but they just sold audio/video equipment.

    By the pizzeria was Sound Components but that was up the street.

    Spec's was just north of 57 Ave. and US1 but they're out of business.

    ...and Virgin was on 57 Ave. and US1 and they are also out of business.
