Tower have a decent-sized vinyl section, but no-one seems to oversee it--it's usually in serious disarray. They have sections for Rock LPs, Hip-hop singles and LPs, and Electronic LPs. All the used LPs are in roughly alphabetical order in the top of the racks and jumbled with new vinyl of all types underneath the racks. If you have time to pick through you can find some great stuff, some of which is pretty obscure, and some of which is rare (such as german pressings of Beatles' albums or first pressings of Johnny Cash). So far, okay. My biggest problem with Tower is this: a number of albums have two price tags on them. At least twice when I've taken an album with two price tags up at the front, I've been told that the price is actually the higher price, and that the lower price was put on there "by someone who wasn't trained" or "on accident." At which point I've registered my displeasure and told the clerk that I didn't want th(os)e album(s). This price discrepancy is not noted anywhere. Very lame.
