    That could very well be. I'm strictly a used CD buyer so I have no reference point for the pre-expansion vinyl inventory. Having said that, I'm confident that they didn't build all those new bins just to leave them empty...:edthumbs:

    So I recently called up Forever Young to see if they had a used CD in stock (Eric Clapton's Money & Cigarettes). It's a 1/2 hour drive and I'm trying to keep somewhat of a threshold about going to non-essential places during a pandemic. The employee on the phone was polite, put me on hold to go check, came back and told me they had it. I asked the price. He said he'd have to put me on hold to find out (??? - I don't remember seeing used CDs without a price on them when I went before). He came back and told me $24.99 - I expressed some surprise, and he added that it's "out of print" and apparently an "original" release. Which reminded me of the little handwriting on their price stickers, used to justify a higher price.

    Obviously I passed. Seemed a bit iffy... as if the person he asked (manager? owner?) thought "What, somebody actually wants that old thing? Let's milk this!" I'm in support of small businesses and everything, and I know people have to pay the bills, but I'm not paying that much for a freakin' used major label domestic Eric Clapton CD.

    That’s exactly why I rarely ever take the long drive to visit that place. Their prices are absurd. I usually leave empty handed and annoyed.

    Sadly, that’s pretty typical pricing for this store. They have a lot of cool music memorabilia on display so maybe they’re going more the museum route with the pricing policy.

    I saw Josey posted they finished their Bills section of the store, no organization but they did put prices per the posting.
