Record collectors and plain old music fans alike love this local used CD shop, founded in 1980 in Phoenix, and now boasting eight locations in Tucson, Phoenix, Tempe, Chandler, and Las Vegas. Zia has long been a music Mecca for starving artists and broke college students, and carries thousands of used titles, from death metal to country, as well as brand-new product at lower-than-list prices. Low on cash? No problem, at Zia. Just bring along a handful of your old CDs and trade ’em in. While you’re there, pick up a new issue of Rolling Stone, or an old issue of Crawdaddy, or a stack of flyers promoting the latest local live bands playing out this weekend. The friendly, music-savvy staff will be happy to help you find that elusive Kinks compilation, or to turn you on to new tunes you didn’t know existed. Anyone can download music, but at Zia, you can hang out and jaw about it, too.
