Re: Records vs. CDs vs. digital music

I too miss Hastings dearly. We still have Half-Price Books & Movie Trading Co, but they don't have the breadth or depth of Hastings' selection. I think the local Walmarts still sell CDs, maybe the local Targets too. Again, they're not the same as a dedicated store; they can only carry the most p...
