When Twist and Shot opened in 1988 there were no MP3 players, iPods or smart phones. The store is in some ways a throwback to those days, yet very much current. It's a place where Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials and Gen Zers all can shop for the music they love, old and new. The store carries every conceivable genre and format of music, and its true claim to fame may be what is arguably the largest selection of new and used vinyl in the country. Live performances are staged in the store each month, both local artists and national touring acts, and merchandise includes art films, music movies, toys, shirts and all kinds of other fun stuff. As if all that weren't enough, according to management, the store has "the most creative, unique, artsy, sexy employees on earth." Who wouldn't want to shop there?
- Best Shopping: "This is one place where shoppers can try it before they buy it. Twist and Shout has listening stations throughout the store and stereos behind the counter where buyers can hear pretty much any record or CD before handing over the cash."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: Twist and Shout is a place to find CDs, old and new vinyl and to hear live music--no matter which generation is doing the shopping.
