    In Palm Beach country check out Top Five Records in Lake Worth. The owner is very down to earth and sells albums in great condition. I don't even bother inspecting them anymore. If he says mint, it's mint.

    Last time I was in Delray Beach /Boca area I went in to one of the many pawn shops on Federal. Picked up the coveted 2cd Johnny Rivers anthology on Rhino.
    For 50 cents! (after ripping to HD sold for $50).

    At least for CDs, great deals to be found if you are willing to venture into those (seedy) pawn shops.

    Vinyl Request Records at 1244 Sarno Rd, Melbourne, FL 32935 is a great vinyl only shop. The owners name is Chris - a great guy that lets you dig through boxes of treasures he has recently picked up. If you get to them before he does he gives you a decent discount.

    I’ve been meaning to get over here and post some pictures. I finally made it to Technique Records last month. Mike wasn’t around but the girl working there was very helpful and friendly. Good selection and prices are same as Discogs median for titles, same way he priced at Radio-active. Store is clean and vinyl was well organized. I didn’t have time to look through the CDs. I think they’re still tweaking the layout of the store, from what the girl was telling me. I ended up buying a couple of LPs, Jacob Miller and Gregory Isaacs. There’s parking on the street and a few spots around the back of the store. A good vibe. Hope they do well.

  6. When i lived in Palm Beach, FL from 1999 until 2018, I found a record store still in business called Confusion Records in Lake Park, FL Google Maps
    after i checked that place out, Best Buy got rid of the CD's now Not Target and Walmart which still sells them.

    Want any CDs go to a thrift store such as Goodwill or any other thrift store or use eBay or even Amazon if you want online.

    I've now based in Port St. Lucie, FL since Aug-Sep 2018

    Bringing this dormant thread back to life to ask for a friend - me! (Aren't we all our own best friends?)

    Might be taking a jaunt down to Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and would like to do some used CD hunting while there.

    What's left that's worth the effort?

    I live in South Florida but I haven’t been to a physical CD/record store in years—heck, maybe not even in a decade now. Otherwise you know I’d be doing my very best to help you, Colin.

    Try the local landfills down here. There are probably thousands of CDs getting dumped in there every day. I haven’t been in a music store in over a year, but Orlando was pretty much dried up for CDs. Park Ave CDs and Rock and Roll Heaven still had some selection the last time I was there, but who knows now? Antique stores might be an idea as well. Renningers up in Mt. Dora had some the last time I was there. No idea about Miami/Ft. Lauderdale.

    I haven’t been in Ft. Lauderdale in decades, but if the huge flea markets are still around there are probably some bargains to be had.

    I live in South Florida don’t go into any record store down here looking for compact discs less than $3 each that is as cheap as they get.

    Thanks for the posts?

    Really looking for the names of any decent stores that might exist in South FL.

    Or if there are none, that'd be helpful too!

    You can try The Record Rack in Pompano Beach. I’ve never been there, but the online reviews look good.

    Another is Radio Active Records in Ft. Lauderdale. Again, never been there—and here the reviews don’t look as good.

    Forget Miami, this place is a ghost town for records and CDs. Also, there’s more of a chance we might run into each other—and I’ve seen your Facebook pic.

    Miami has a TON of record stores now to the point that I feel like its becoming oversaturated. I went to a new store a few months back (don't actually know when they opened) and I was really impressed by their collection. Prices seemed pretty good too compared to Technique. I've been itching to go back for awhile.

    Do you have any store names besides Technique?
