A Chat with Purple Dog Records
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We like to carry records that we enjoy listening to and at a price that’s accessible to everyone. We’re music lovers and are enthusiastic about actually playing the record. No matter your budget, you will walk away with quality vinyl.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites?
I’m a big fan of Mad Magazine, so I like to go through ours occasionally and read a little. Another favorite are the 45s. There are so many in the store that I sometimes forget what we have until it’s brought to the counter.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
This shop was a dream of mine and my father’s for a very long time. We run it together as a Father/Daughter team. Music has been a huge part of both of our lives and although neither of us play an instrument, we consider ourselves professional appreciators.
What do you love most about your job?
The freedom to listen to whatever I feel like. If it’s rainy, let’s put on some Miles Davis. Sunny and hot? That feels like Van Halen to me.
