Foursquare Tips

  • The basement boasts one of the best VHS collections in the metro area!
  • Shop here for music and movies if even just once in a while to support small business!
  • The Asian girl who stocks the music is the cutest girl in uptown.
  • Cheapo has an enormous (borderline intimidating, really) selection of music, where you can get lost for hours. Used music is mixed in with the new, so you can find a great deal without too much fuss.
  • Cheapo has an amazing vinyl selection. Tony, their record man, is the best.
  • Take a pen.
  • Compliment the employees on their stylish Cheapo smocks
  • Business is called Cheapo Discs, not 'Cheapos'
  • This store is the biggest game in town for used music. The staff is helpful and will try to order anything you don't see.
  • Great place if you are looking for that rare record! And yes they have records!
  • Don't come here hungover...
  • Over priced, don't be fooled by the name. Staff is super friendly though.
  • Great place to find books
  • Largest collection of cds, vhs', cassettes, and 8tracks that I've ever seen. It's like they're housing all the formats of the different dying media.
  • I generally like this place, but I'm confused why there's only ONE GUY who can sell vinyl supplies (Ex: New Needle). I know what I need, I have money, why can't we complete this transaction?
  • High record prices. No budget record section?!? The employee I spoke with was neither friendly nor terribly helpful. Overall, not impressed. Would have bought more if the prices were more reasonable.
  • Records at Cheapo Records are actually not cheap. I've found titles for 2/3 the cost at The Electric Fetus. The selection, however, is massive.
  • Their website is wrong...they do not open until 10:00 warned!
  • Beatles Mono/Stereo Remixes.
