Who would have thought that Indiana’s oldest record store would be found in Fairmount, Indiana?

Hi Fi Stereo Shop doesn’t just carry records–they carry new records!

I have to say, it surprised me, and maybe will surprise a few of you, too, to learn that you can still get new records from current artists! Who knew?

Brittany Spears, Fall Out Boys, Blake Shelton, John Mayer, Kelly Clarkson, Dido, OutKast…I couldn’t believe it! I had no idea records were still produced.

If they’ve been made, they are probably here. There are thousands of records inside Hi Fi Stereo Shop! That’s what happens when you have been in business since the late 1960′s! You end up with a lot of stock and a whole lot of know-how!

Browse the shelves of this Grant County record store for records of all sizes, plus 8-track, Cassette tapes, and even CD’s. Notice the unique records in the image to the right. Isn’t that fun? Even now, getting close to four years of little Indiana travels, and I still see things I have never seen before.

Need something that they don’t have? They will special order for you!

They don’t sell online. They are more interested in the experience and, in true small town style, simply talking and getting to know their customers.

Browse through their guest book and you can see that folks from Indiana towns, the rest of the state, the United States, and the rest of the world flock to Hi Fi Stereo Shop. Germany, Canada, England…the list goes on and on.

If you pop in and Tom, owner Helen’s son, happens to be around, go shake his hand, and tell him “thanks!” He kindly took oodles of time out of his day and gave little Indiana the grand tour of Fairmount–and my subsequent articles about the town will be the better for it!

No record player? No problem! I did see a few in stock–so get in there and experience music the way it was meant to be.

Just don’t forget to tell ‘em that  little Indiana sent you!
