Chad's Records is a one of a kind music store in Chattanooga. Located on the edge of the UTC campus, it caters to not only the college age crowd, but also those of us for whom music is an essential. They carry a lot of vinyl, but also do have CDs. You won't find mainstream music here, but lots of vintage albums, independent labels, indie bands, collectors albums and much more. Flipping through the crates of records will take you back in time. The store is a little on the dingy side, with lots of florescent lights, but you're there to listen to music, not for the decorating. Feel free to ask anyone working there for recommendations or any other questions you might have. They are more than knowledgeable about the music scene and you will get into some good conversations and end up hanging out for a while.
