The Leechpit - Colorado Springs

The Leechpit - Colorado Springs, CO

Adam and Heather Leech opened up The Leechpit in 2003 just outside downtown Colorado Springs. The store quickly gained a loyal following in the area, which has steadily grown into a stellar national reputation among vinyl collectors. 

Nine years ago, The Leechpit moved to its current location in West Colorado Springs, a 4,000 square-foot shop nearly three times the floor space of its previous location. Family-owned and operated since its inception, The Leechpit was named one of the 50 Best Record Stores in America by Vinyl Me Please. 

Specializing in new and used records, vintage clothing, toys and collectibles, The Leechpit is proud to provide a place to let the local weirdos be weird.

Sound & Vision Vinyl - Salt Lake City 🏪

Sound and Vision Vinyl - Salt Lake City

Music has been in Michael Maccarrone's life for as long as he can remember. A native of Long Island, Michael began collecting Beatles records at the age of 12. Two years later, Michael discovered a record store in New York that changed his life by introducing him to acts like David Bowie and the New York Dolls. 

Today, Michael is hoping to similarly impact future generations of music fans through his shop, Sound & Vision Vinyl, which Michael and partner Pam Lancaster opened in 2015. The two met at a New York punk club called Legz in the early 80s and reconnected when life took both to Utah. Sound & Vision offers
 the latest releases on vinyl and CD as well as rare collectible and memorabilia, t-shirt's, vintage promo displays and more. 

This isn't Michael's first foray into running a record store, as he managed nearly a dozen in the New York metro area between 1978 and 2010. Before jumping into the indie record store business, Pam was head of MTV's Fashion and Makeup Department in the 1980s.

Record Exchange - Silver Spring, MD 🏪

Record Exchange Silver Spring

Located in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland - just outside Washington, DC - The Record Exchange has been serving the area for nearly 25 years. Three years ago, store employees Sheila Hunt and Brian France took over the store as new owners, continuing a well-known legacy for the DMV music community. 

When taking over the store, Sheila understood the importance a record store has beyond just a place to buy music. "The record store is not just about buying for a lot of our customers, it’s kind of their touchstone for the week. It’s their relaxation for the week,” she told Capital News Service. 

Throughout the pandemic, Sheila, Brian and team conducted virtual "flip-throughs" on the store's Facebook and Instagram pages as a way to stay connected with their customers and show them what was new, in-store while visiting the shop in-person was impossible. 

The Record Exchange carries a wide variety of new and used vinyl, CDs, DVDs, BluRays, video games, gaming systems, patches, stickers, posters, t-shirts and more.
