I will be in the Twin Cities this weekend and I am always on the lookout for any interesting music or DVD stores to visit. I am mainly interested in music, classic, horror and non-R1 discs. Prefer a good selection AND price, but I know that's not always the case. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Eric

If you find any let me know. Posted Image

The only shops I know of are places like Best Buy, Suncoast, Etc. Down In The Valley was supposed to be beefing up their music DVD selection, but I haven't been there in a long while.

Any used shop I've been to lately has had horrible prices. Usually a buck or two cheaper than getting it new at Best Buy.

Don't know of any shops that do Non R1 stuff other than a prick selling bootlegs (please no one ask about it, I'm not going to send him business).

It's too late now, but my experience is the same as Brians; there are no exceptional dvd stores in the Twin Cities area. I did run across a video store in Apple Valley (suburb south of the Twin Cities) that had some non-R1 stuff (but mostly bootlegs), but not enough to recommend going there (even if I could remember where it was).

The Twin Cities is a pretty sad place to shop for cds also.

If anyone knows of a good dvd or cd place (other than Cheapo's, Applause or The Electric Fetus for cds) with some depth in their selections, I'd sure like to know about it also.

Yup, it is indeed a sad state of affairs in the Twin Cities...especially since it took five days for the first reply to appear. I wasn't able to find anything of interest while there. Wherever I go I hope to find a "really cool" DVD store, but it's not in the Mpls. area.
