Gold Winner Taz Records, Halifax
Silver Winner Obsolete Records
Bronze Winner CD HeavenTaz’s new location on Grafton Street hasn’t lost any of the charm of the old space—granted it’s just around the corner, but still, it goes to show that a record store is only as good as its stock and its staff. If you haven’t done it before, I highly recommend bringing a newcomer to the store, just to see how their face will light up. Taz boasts over 35,000 LPs, 10,000 CDs and 30,000 seven-inch singles in every musical taste from hip-hop, punk, jazz, classical—you name it. It’s a music lover’s dream in a time when music shops are all too far and few between, but after all, quality is what matters over quantity.
