BEST RECORD STORE
Borders Books & Music
Okay, I know Borders offers a good selection of music. I also
recognize that they have reasonable prices and are totally convenient.
I’ve been known to drop some cash there myself. But, I feel like as a
“record store” the only real winner could be Requests, which in this
case is the runner-up. Where else on the island can you find an entire
basement full of records for sale? You can’t. And when you walk in,
there are vintage posters everywhere and cool music playing. It’s a
REAL music store, whereas Borders is a big chain bookstore that sells
music off to the side, between the calendars and the children’s
section. 270 Dairy Rd., Kahului, 877-6160.
Runner-up: Requests, 10 N. Market St., Wailuku, 244-9315. (HK)
