there is a pretty good selection here, but the jazz/blues sections are rather small. If you are looking for rock/indie/electronics, this is a great place to go. Also there is a skufs section with better prices.

I'm writing my review more than 2 1/2 years after the last review, and longer than 3 1/2 years after the review before that. Things certainly are NO better at this store now. The storefront itself is nice, but their prices for both new and used discs and LPs are average or greater, therefore you'd think they would try to be exceptional in some way. The staff barely glances at you and never says a word; even at the register, not even a smile. I've been going there for a few years now and I've always had a below average experience. There are so many other places I'd rather go.

While its still pretty good. I think it actually used to be a bit better.
Cellophane Square is located in the University District and while they do sell new stuff, this is the place to go to find the long lost cd you have been looking for.
I think alot of studens are hocking their old cd collections after burning to their ipods!
I have found that the turnaround is pretty fast so you check in off and on you will a whole other inventory.
If you are a music freak like me you will want to check this place out.

I think they have new CDs, but my main interest in them is their very extensive used CD collection. Last I checked, most CDs were around 6-8 dollars, which is pretty reasonable.

I agree with gokings and that review was written nearly a year ago. Cellophane Squares staff has not improved their attitude in fact, it has gotten worse. The employees never smile and you are never greeted when you step into the store except when they generate enough energy to tell you that they need to keep your backpack behind the counter. The unfriendly attitude is especially true for the night crew.

It makes me sad because I have been shopping at Cellophane Square since 1979 and it used to be the greatest music store in the Northwest. It used to run by a knowledgeable staff that was nearly overeager to share their music awareness. Their attitude was infectious and I would always walk out knowing a little more about music than when I went in. Now, youd be lucky to get a nod from one of the sedate employees.

Pros: decent selection

Cons: unfriendly staff

When I go to buy a cd, the one thing I look for is selection. Cellophane Records definitely has that. Cool layout, and hey they had some group performing, so it was kind of like a free concert. Prices were about average, but my boyfriend told me he found quality vinyl at good prices, you just have to be willing to really look hard. I know it sounds cheesy, but this store made me feel cool when I walked in.

The U District store has recently felt very cold. Not sure if this is due to the recent ownership change but the employees seem to be walking around in a daze and very rarely do they crack a smile or offer assistance. When you consider that the place has a very standard inventory of music to begin with, the cold vibe is enough to make one go somehwre else to get some new music.
