Best Indie Record Store, Washtenaw County

Encore Records

417 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; 734-662-6776; encorerecordsa2.com

This past summer, two employees purchased Encore from its longtime owner Peter Dale. Besides tweaking the name — Encore Recordings is now Encore Records, the new owners haven't changed the place much, to the relief of music lovers everywhere. The shop still features floor-to-ceiling shelves chock-full of new and used vinyl and CDs, including rare gems and a large number of jazz and classical titles. The store's large collection of music-related books, posters, handbills and other paper ephemera also remains intact.
