Best Of 2014: Store for Music, Movies and Video Games

Goodbye, paycheck. Sayonara, shelf space. You will give in to all kinds of media at Independent Records, a 36-year-old business that's constantly growing to meet your needs. In summer 2012, owners added used books to three of their five locations: downtown, on East Platte Avenue, and in Security. Since, they've added more smoking accessories, toys, games, jewelry and T-shirts. "Right now we're investing in Cassette Store Day," says Matt Gehrung, Independent Records' wholesale buyer. "It's the new vinyl, as far as hipster-ism goes." And as for what's next, it's hard to say. "If it makes sense for us, there's a very good chance that we'll invest in it," Gehrung says, "regardless of whether it's usually in a record store or not." — Griffin Swartzell
