Charleston Needs: Elk City Records

Have a passion for vinyl? Phil Melick does, and that is why in 2017 he opened Elk City Records. The store is nestled into the city’s revitalized Elk City neighborhood at 311 Washington Street, West and features thousands of albums, all carefully cultivated by Shopkeeper Phil himself.

Browse a dazzling array of jazz, classical, folk, blues, show, and gospel recordings. Once you find something you like, the shop offers a vintage amplifier and turntables so you can listen to your soon-to-be purchase.

Stocking stuffers and gift cards available! Check social media or website for hours.
