Without modern electronics, mankind would have limited access to Bach’s symphonies, Hitchcock’s films, and Bob Saget’s dog and baby voice-overs. Stock up on modern entertainment with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of used DVDs, CDs, and video games at three Disc Replay locations in Countryside, Downers Grove, and Orland Park.
Disc Replay’s friendly employees help visitors navigate shelves burgeoning with thousands of used CDs, movies on DVD and Blu-ray, video games, and gaming systems. Each item is examined for functionality and endurance in spinning for a mile before it’s allowed to join its friends in the storefront, where all items priced above $0.99 are guaranteed to work. DVDs (usually $4.99–$9.99) join their circular CD brethren ($2.99–$7.99 for a single disk; $9.99–$14.99 for doubles) to form a sleek buffet of audio and visual stimulation, and a bargain bin of CDs ($0.99 each or four for $1) pinch their own cheeks, smile, and wait hopefully for adoption. Video games (usually $1.99–$44.99) and gaming accessories ($1.99–$75) grant escape from the alien- and ogre-plagued realities of the modern world, and gaming systems (usually $19.99–$350) stand ready to follow them home.
Tens of thousands of used CDs, DVDs, and video games stock the shelves at Disc Replay. Since 1994, the store has bought and sold the secondhand wares to customers in search of new titles or rare finds, as well as used electronics such as gaming systems, iPods, and portable phonographs. The shop backs their stock by guaranteeing that every item will work like new—if it doesn't, customers can exchange their purchase without hassle.
