A short ride on the Streetcar gets you there from anyplace downtown, and who doesn't like shopping on NW 23rd? Assuming you live downtown that is. I have never met a ""snobby"" employee there. There have only been two instances that they have not had my requested music in stock, and both times they were very courteous in getting me ""on the list"" and calling me when it was in. Great electronic/techno section. I would imagine that if you were treated rudely it probably had something to do with the ""Portland Attitude."" We don't like outsiders in our town. I would be surprised if you were treated rudely on your second visit. If being treated rudely the first time is too much for you to bare, I would suggest shopping someplace else. Like Beaverton.
Pros: selection, knowledge, location
