Default Are there still any Music Stores around....

...that buy used CDs? I know Compact Disc World on 46 in the Wayne / Fairfield area used to, but looks like they closed.

Anyone know if any other places? Either from the Morris / Essex / Passaic area or as far south as Middlesex County?

I have at least 100 I am looking to get rid of. Thanks!

Bad news. It's 2011 and there is no market for CD's anymore. I mean there are a few people that still buy brand new ones to get uncompressed music, but old used ones? Nah.
Maybe if you had records.

Better off just converting them to digi files and throwing them out like everyone else has done instead of trying to make a quick buck. Even on eBay you won't get much unless we're talking platinum CD's autographed by celebs.

Unfortunately I figured as much. Uploaded any songs I wanted to my ipod ages ago.... Maybe I'll just put them out at our garage sale next month with a sign that they are .50 cents each and see what happens. Ugh what a shame when I think of what I probably spent on them all over the years.....

Sorry, we all spent a ton on tapes, cds, vhs, even dvds and now they're obsolete. That's technology for ya.

You can bring them to Vintage Vinyl on Rt. 1 in Woodbridge (near Ford Ave). They will not give you much money for them though, maybe $5 a piece or something.

Also look at Princeton Record Exchange, never sold anything to them so I cannot give you info on how much they will pay you there.

Thanks, I'll check into Vintage Vinyl. $5 a piece would be awesome, way more than I expected!

$5 a piece? lolz. you'll probably get about $5 for all 100.

You can also try Tunes in Hoboken. They buy used CDs.. but again, don't expect much.

Scotti's Record Shops in Morristown and Summit:

Scotti's Record Shops About Us


I'm staring at 2 boxes full of CDs right now. I can't get rid of them until I transfer them all into iTunes. That's a task that's been on my To Do list for about 4 years now, though, so it's looking like that's never going to get done.

Of course, I still have a crate full of cassette tapes too. But that's because my car has a tape deck and I can listen to them in there. Haha. So sad.
