Record Shops in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk*
The places where you buy your music
You can tell us more about Bury St Edmunds.
- There used to be several but they have all shut down now and it is shameful say that woolworths is probably the only place, or whsmiths. fop made a brief apperance but less than a year later it was gone.
- No real shops in Bury at the mo.(Jan 2007) Fopp is useless and more for students who want to discover that new off the wall funky band. i.e - shit.
- Music zone, replaced MVC, good but has popular metal, needs more underground stuff
- Everyone on here has said Andys records and MVC are best... They've both been shut down so if you want music you may as well go on Amazon as find anything that isn't in the charts in Bury.
- Andy's records
- The only shop in Bury for music now is MVC, its cheap but anything a little more alternative has to be ordered in. HMV is coming soon via the new cattle Market redevelopment. The only other places are woolies and whsmith, both of which now do in store ordering
- I always go to MVC for my music and dvd purchases, They are always friendly and nothing is too much for them. Sorry to hear they are up for sale but with any luck we might get someone else in that store that can meet MVCs high standard.
- RIP andys we are now left with that mecca of the buy one get another that you dont want free MVC
- MVC is the latest musical hotspot now that andy's records has gone
- Chevette were a good band and don't deserve that slating. Andys Records has always sucked. I recall getting sneered at as a 12 yr old 25 years ago when I asked them for Never Mind The Bollocks. Not that I'm one to bear a grudge or anything...
- MVC, even tho theyre really unhelpful in there-grrr! Then there's the usual like woolies, smiths, sainsburys etc.
- mvc's realy good for music, either that or woolworths is all youve got really
- Mvc is quite good, hardcore hobbies sell some well good fast, rare punk music
- MVC and Andies records are the two best shops in Bury
- Andys' recordshave all the records but is very expensive
- Andy's record shop was my first intro to great music in the late 70's! Got a chance to return a couple of years ago and still loved it!
- and andys
- MY BEST PLACE TO BUY RECORDS IS ANDY'S RECORDS
- MVC bright cheerful staff who do know stuff about music,cheap reasonable prices,there is always some offer for all walks of life on cds,dvds,and videos.a big Well Done to all. advise any one buying entertainment to go there. As for it being a shower of shite shame half of Andys staff work there does this mean andys know jack about music too.
- There are no specialist record shops, mvc and andy's records which don't actually sell many records. so forget it really!
- Andy's records is much more expensive than hmv and virgin. But reasonably well stocked all the same.
- Can't believe the comment about Andy's. Mos def not gay. Best record shop going. Far better than that shower of shite MVC. I know for a fact that the staff in MVC know jack-all about music (example: I asked for a Joy Division record, the assistant thought they were a female singer called 'Joy'.) Everyone go to Andy's!!!! Quality store. Nuff said.
- 'Andy's' is a good local retailler but never seems to have the stuff you want now.
Bring back the 'record pedler' i say
- Andy's Records has got all the chart stuff aswell as some other pretty phat slightly uderground stuff.
- MVC - newer, cheaper and Better than Andys, which is Gay!
- Andy's Records on St. John's Street remains one of the finest record shops I have ever known; St John's Street also used to have the Record Pedlar, which may still be open, and is superb for underground/alternative/indie/dance and rarities and one of the finest music shops I ever knew - may be open, may not, by the time you read this.
- The Record Pedlar used to be good for second hand stuff, with a decent turn-over of 12" dance trax.
- Andy's Records in St John's Street is good, and it started in Bury St Edmunds, and is now all over the country. Including that other great British town, Sheffield.
