Shopping >Jackpot Records
Best place to browse and discover new tunes. Sure, you could get CDs cheaper at Best Buy -- but only at a place like Jackpot would you discover your next favorite up-and-coming band, uncover strange but wonderful gems from decades past and even quirky new genres of music that will make even your hippest hipster pals marvel at your cutting-edge taste. Jackpot is the kind of record store that just radiates with a love for music -- from the friendly and helpful staff to the astounding array of new and used CDs, vinyl and obscure DVDs, you'll remember why it's so much more fun to browse through the racks of a really good record store (and not just get stuff on the Web). I don't even LIVE in Portland, but I always make it a point to visit Jackpot to get my fix of great tunes.

This isn't the average indie store. The love and appreciation of music in owner Isaac Slusarenko's genes--his brothers have formed two successful bands, Sprinkler and Svelt--shines through in this store. It houses an amazing selection of music from every era, plus lots of local music, reggae and ska, and tons of collectible vinyl. Jackpot also offers a particularly complete collection of garage-psych music.
listen before you buy. My favorite thing about Jackpot is that I can listen to any CD -new or used- before I buy it. If they don't have what I'm looking for, they are always happy to order it.
