When a friend of mine recommended Zia Records to sell old used games, I took up the offer and drove 40 minutes west to this location with a friend to get a few dollars for my playstation video game collection. Not excepting to get much money in the first place for the games, I liked the idea of selling at a local store over a common GameStop. I now deeply regret it. Upon arrival I went to the video game section, set down the box, and explained I wanted a trade. An overweight man in his mid 30's with a beard was a nightmare to talk to. After telling him and his female co worker that the box contained 35 games in total, he smarmily replied "cool man," rolling his eyes as if I was bragging. Shocked at the response I said I was just trying to help and they told me "nice fact bro" and just ignored my existence. My friend and I were appalled. Eventually, they went through a 20 minute process of checking the games and offered me fifteen dollars which sounded low even for how awful game value is. Not wanting to repeat this process of selling my childhood memories- I accepted the fifteen and the woman gave me a Zia card with the credit on it. Confused, I just said I wanted actual money and she pulled the card out of my hands and said it was only going to be ELEVEN dollars then. Not wanted to spend another second in that store I took the money and left. Moral of the story, keep all your used video games unless you truly don't treasure them. Don't bother driving to Zia Records unless you want, well, some records. And if you see the bearded guy in the video section with a red head... RUN

Zia is a nice record store that sells both new and used product. They have got a good selection of CD's, but I (and I think most others) tend to come here to check out their used product. Like most of these type of shops, they will take your unwanted music and give you cash or store credit for them. A nice bonus of the store is the ability to listen to the music (the used product that is already opened) before you buy it. The only real downside to the store is the fact that you cannot simply open up the used as you browse to see what kind of condition the discs are in. The store concentrates on rock music, and they usually play some sort of hip rock band while you shop. The workers are nice and will help you if asked, but otherwise stay out of your way.

PROS: great selection of used CD's
CONS: inability to open used discs as you browse to see condition of CD

This place is great for picking up albums from local bands or finding rare imports as well as all the latest releases. They will also help tune you in to new music if you're looking for something fresh. I always find what I need here and get great recommendations from the knowledgeable staff.

This store has a bunch of rare albums and vinyls. There is a huge selection of dvds and cds. The store also has a lot of information about local bands and events going on in the community, and the decor itself has a cool vibe to it. Sometimes the bands will come in and sign CDs on special days. I've also sold back CDs to them and gotten Zia dollars or cash.

If you like music then this is the store to go to! They have all kinds of music to choose from. They have the hard to find groups and singers that you cannot find at places like Target and Bestbuy. They carry bands that are from other countries as well. They can usually find an item if they don't carry it too. They have new and used items to choose from at low prices. They have music memorbilla too. Small Parking lot makes parking tight.

They have tons of music to choose from. Lots of names from way back when. They buy old records, tapes, and cd's. They will give you a percentage back. It's a great store to buy music that you can't find anymore at newer music stores! Nicely laid out, and easy to find artists!

I have gone to Zia's quite a few times to look around and it is very interesting.They have a good selection.I was just kind of disappointed that they wouldn't buy our records and cassettes after telling us on the phone that they would buy any type of music.Oh well,maybe we will try again someday.

From new stuff to old stuff this place has it all. You can buy it new or used, and it's always a great price. They have stuff that no one else ever has. If you're into a non-typical music style, this is the place to go!
