While it's true that record stores are sadly dying, they're not dead yet. To prove the case, Buzzfeed Music posted a great article on the best record stores in the world. Here's what they considered to be the top 10.

1. Amoeba Music - Hollywood, CA. (I've been there, since I live near Hollywood - it's fabulous!)

2. 12 Tonar - Reykjavik, Iceland

3. Aquarius Music - San Francisco, CA

4. Tower Records - Tokyo, Japan

5. Princeton Record Exchange - Princeton, NJ

6. Spacehall - Berlin, Germany

7. The Thing - Brooklyn, NY

8. Waterloo Records - Austin, TX

9. Forever Young Records - Grand Prairie, TX

10. Mabu Vinyl - Capetown, South Africa

The article mentions 17 additional great record stores, so for all of you vinyl aficionados, consider this your bucket list.
