Holiday Shopping Guide: Music

When it comes to music, there’s really only two stores in town to visit for retail. Unless, of course, you’re looking for musical instruments, but I really can’t help you there. So, here’s the Holiday Shopping Guide for music.


Yes, I just recommended them for toys, but music is where they’re at. New and used CDs and vinyl records covering most genres I can think of. They also have DVDs and a variety of other items (like the toys). Definitely the more metropolitan-feeling of the two.

Ranch Records

Bend’s iconic music store that’s been around for ages and ages. They offer a good selection of new and used CDs and vinyl records, as well as movies (DVDs) and posters. Pricing is similar or the same as at Boomtown, though I think they carry more used albums. Ranch Records is more "Grateful Dead" to Boomtown’s metropolitan, I think.
