I never expected to pay like a criminal while shopping for records but that’s exactly what happened at Atlanta’s Criminal Records.

I had driven about 5 hours from Nashville the prior night and checked into a hotel. When morning came I tried to find the most creative place to start our shopping so I looked up stores and Atlanta’s Criminal Records came up in the Google Search.

I plugged it into my GPS and started travelling. When we got there parking was hard to find but I eventually found a spot. I never thought to wonder if they charged for street parking on weekends. I parked my car and went in for 10 minutes to look and make a $2 purchase of a CD single.

When I came out, 10 minutes later, there was a parking ticket. It turns out the space IS metered but you have to go to a little machine and get pay a parking fare, it’s not coin driven or a traditonal parking meter.

In that sense I paid $37.00 (counting the processing fee) for the privellege of shopping at Criminal Records. So be warned, the City of Atlanta has made it criminally expensive to shop for records!

 

It’s Criminal to have to shop for records in Atlanta.
