Vintage Vinyl is mildly famous throughout the country, though there are only 2 locations and St. Louis is lucky enough to be home to one of them. This massive store has CDs, records, videos, posters, record players and basically everything else any music nerd or audiophile might desire. They have listening stations set up throughout the store and the employees can always recommend something for anyone who is overwhelmed by the incredible selection. It's far too easy to spend hours in this store, perusing the music and losing yourself in the collectible vinyls. They also host local bands a few times a month.
