Ready to get groovy, Richmond? Unplug the aux cord and dust off your mom’s old record player — we’ve rounded up seven River City record stores totally in tune with your impeccable taste.

Deep Groove Records, 317 N. Robinson St.
This Fan shop celebrated 15 years in business this April. City Editor David particularly appreciates its selection of used jazz and blues records.

Plan 9 Music, 3017 W. Cary St.
If you haven’t had a chance to peruse the aisles of this Carytown favorite, be warned — it’s easy to accidentally idle away a whole day crate-digging.

Vinyl Conflict, 300 E. Grace St.
Richmond’s only dedicated hardcore, punk, and metal record store moved downtown from Oregon Hill in 2022.

Records & Relics RVA, 2704 E. Marshall St.
Dig through some local LPs, flip through a few music books, and search through an extensive collection of posters, stickers, CDs, and more at this Church Hill store.

Wax Moon, 1310 Altamont Ave.
This Scott’s Addition vinyl and video store houses all genres — not to mention a pinball machine.
