A shop that primarily sells recorded music (vinyl/CDs). Can be called a "record shop"/" record store".

They may sell other related things (posters, books about bands or DVDs of live concerts) in small quantities, but they call themselves a music shop. This tag includes those who sell new and previously owned/second hand/used music and "exchange" shops.
