A well-rounded music collection is a sign of a well-rounded person, whereas a well-octagoned music collection means that you’ve been listening to stop signs on your turntable. Give the green light to recorded sound with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pre-owned games, music, movies, apparel, and memorabilia at cd/game Exchange.
The knowledgeable personnel at cd/game Exchange equip passersby to stave off boredom with a treasure trove of lightly used modes of entertainment. Labyrinthine rows of pre-owned CDs by renowned tunesmiths nourish famished ear canals ($1+), and stacks of DVDs provide fodder for movie nights with family and friends ($3+). Fuel competitive appetites with a collection of videogames and button smashers ($5+), or conceal holes in the wall caused by indoor shot-put with Jimi Hendrix and Misfits posters and flags. Thanks to a steady flow of trade-ins for newer merchandise, cd/game Exchange's stock remains ever changing.
When it gave cd/game Exchange the title of Best Entertainment Shop in its annual Best of Eugene roundup, Eugene Weekly praised the store for its “poster-covered walls and wide variety of things with which to entertain yourself.” Those things have constantly changed over cd/game Exchange’s 20-year existence, and today, its shelves are stocked with customer-supplied used CDs, video games, movies, posters, and apparel, instead of Hammer pants and VHS copies of Wrestlemania’s Greatest Hits. Experts inspect each item to determine its condition, then decide on a cash value and trade value. With their store credit or cash, customers can stock up on lightly used Wii titles and DVDs ranging from Spider-Man to Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
