The difficulty in this task lies in anticipating and adapting to every customer’s individual notion of fun. For some it’s finding a gem in the dollar bins, for others it’s walking in and seeing marquee items on the wall. Some want to be left alone to shop, while others will treat you like an amateur psychiatrist and talk your ear off. People want classic titles, what’s new and happening, and the desperately obscure (sometimes all in the same record). However, something that’s patently unfun for all parties involved is the increasingly common $30 retail price tag on new titles or reissues.
