Jackpot Records

SW 9th Ave., Portland, OR; SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, OR

Both locations of this Northwest favorite have plenty of charm, not least because its buyers are clearly in love with vinyl — just about every notable new title available in the format is present and accounted for. The 9th Ave. store in particular — an oasis compared to the overwhelming Powell's Books that's located a couple of blocks away — showcases 12-inch sleeves all over the high walls. There's plenty to select from CD-wise as well, and the airy space is as welcoming as the city itself.
