The Metro located on Arcata’s plaza is a locally owned CD store. They claim the staff has a great knowledge of music from mainstream to the obscure. And from my experience this is very close to true. See for yourself and ask them a question or perhaps sing a part of your new favorite song and they will surprise you with the answer. They did for me. The Metro lets you preview any CD with there listening stations. The selection is pretty good and surprising. You will thing the same with you see the size of the store. Overall it a good store, with emphasis on the service.
