Mark Cartier's business combines his love for music and its vinyl form. His Rich's Record Emporium at 121 W. Main St. has about 3,000 new and used albums for those, like him, who prefer and continue to listen to vinyl albums from years ago over the more modern digital versions. About 70 percent are new and remastered and 30 percent are original or "collectible" albums.
"Records have always been there," Cartier said. "I think a lot of people like me have never given up on vinyl because we sit there and listen to a vinyl recording."
