Ballard is home to one of the country’s best vinyl record shops, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Journal highlighted five stores across the country including Bop Street Records (2220 N.W. Market St.)
From the WSJ:
The sight of a beloved record shop closing its doors has become a troubling trend in recent years. Fortunately when this long-running Ballard neighborhood favorite did just that last summer it was only to move across town to a smaller space. Still, we don’t envy the moving crew involved in that one—it has some 500,000 records in stock even after streamlining the operation.
