Nothing endures like a good vinyl record. You can haunt garage sales or visit thrift stores like Goodwill and Savers to find reams of used (and new) vinyl records in Las Vegas, or you may prefer to visit a shop specializing in the more obscure vintage genres you prefer. Whatever your choice, you have a few options. It’s all in the thrill of the hunt.

Las Vegas, NV 89119
According to insiders, Zia Records is the last true record store in Las Vegas. It sells new and used vinyls, CDs, Blu Rays and DVDs, plus books, as well as other eclectic collectible items. If what you want isn’t in stock, it will order it for you from one of its catalogs. With the great selection and even greater prices, you are pretty sure to find anything your little heart desires.
4555 E. Charleston Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89104
There are two Record City locations, but the East Charleston store has a good selection of 45’s and 78’s as well as laser discs. This store specializes in music and collectibles but you can also find some genuine hard-to-find stuff in stock. It’s a good place to browse the stacks and bins to find hidden musical treasure.
