Phoenix New Times' Description

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.

    Zia has everything. If you are still into vinyl or CDs pick up your discs here. Hang out for a few minutes and listen to the employee picked house music and get some recommendations for obscure music.

    They have everything I was looking for! Movies I can't find anywhere else or haven't seen in ages! Plus great old cd's that I can add to my collection for a much cheaper price!

    If you’re looking for used CD’s, DVD’s, Blu-Rays or any other rare items, this place is a gem. Save yourself some time by bringing in your trade during off-peak hours.

    By far the best record store in az. A wide array of music so everyone can find what they need. Carry new and used so you don't have to break your bank account. Amazing vinyl collection. Must stop here

    They have a great selection of Cds, DVDs and Blu-rays. You can find practically anything here.

    Cool place to find that one CD you were looking for cheap. They have a large selection of vinyl. Used stuff is the way to go. Also, build up your points on your Zia card, you get free stuff.

    Great deals on all CD's and DVD's. Place has old feel to it, but still great music that is worth a listen, also sells posters and video games as well. Great purchases if on a budget.
