The best in town – Great selection of used CDs, and few select new CDs, and an amazing range of vinyl. Check out the bagin vinyl bin to find that REO Speedwagon album that your older brother listened to all the time--you won't be dissapointed. Great staff, too, and a groovy scene on rainy Saturdays.
almost any album you could want – i don't know if everybody still buys cds since everybody has an ipod but this is the best place to go for whatever you're looking for
you can browse through to find something new or you can get your current favorites
Avant-garde jazz, obscure indie rock, alternative country or plain old pop CDs--find it here, cheap. – Going Underground
Used Kids sits below street level in the middle of campus. The small-scale room has stacks of CDs that stretch, almost literally, from the ceiling to the floor. Arranged by genre, browsing these shelves will likely yield some titles that you're looking for.
The staff is highly knowledgeable, which can be a positive and a negative factor in your shopping experience. On the upside, they can help you find that Richard Buckner CD in no time flat. But if you run into a guilty pleasure, like ABBA's greatest hits, and take it to the counter for purchase, you're unlikely to leave without some unwanted commentary.
Used Kids is a campus tradition. You'll find that many of alumni and current employees (and owners) of the store are in bands, running their own independent record labels or writing local music criticism.
Lots of used vinyl – After picking through little stacks of LPs at other record stores, I returned to the Ohio State University favorite. Used Kids has relocated to a second-floor location a few doors down and it is even better than the old store. They have thousands of used LPs and have them priced quite reasonably. A giant dollar section and many others for five dollars or less. I had to stop myself because I was finding more good records than a reasonable budget allows.
Best in Midwest – This is the best record store in Ohio. You almost always find the most obscure thing you thought to look for and alot else you hadn't.If this is the last record store you stop at in town, you'll regret the money you spent everywhere else. So come here first.
