Meet Finders Records - Bowling Green, Ohio 🏪

Finders Records - Bowling Green, Ohio

Greg Halamay arrived in Bowling Green, Ohio to pursue a liberal studies degree at Bowling Green State University. 

After a few months in town, he noticed there was only one place in town to buy music - an instrument store that had a small selection of vinyl. Halamay had spent his high school years in nearby Akron working for his father, who was a musician and worked in radio promotion and sales. 

With his music in his blood and seeing a market with thousands of college kids nearby, Greg opened Finders Records on a hunch and a dream in 1971 at the ripe, old age of 19. 

“I was young, I was under-financed, but I did it,” Halamay told BG Falcon Media. “It was just kind of a natural fit.”

Fifty-plus years later, Finders is a staple in downtown Bowling Green, just steps away from the campus that originally brought him to town. 

Throughout it all, Halamay has rolled with the many changes in the music industry, the rise and fall of both tapes and CDs, as well as the current vinyl resurgence. Halamay has stayed successful by listening to his customers, bouncing new ideas off his staff and attention to detail in curating the music available in the shop.
