Praise for an Everett record store merchant

I have known Gordy Arlin and he has been my friend since 1992. Not only is Gordy, owner of Bargain CDs, Records and Tapes in Everett, a walking encyclopedia of music, he has a heart that is bigger than the heavens. He is a very honest businessman who treasures each customer and treats them as if they were a friend. If a customer has requested a record or a song that is not in the system anymore, Gordy will stop at nothing to help find it even if he has to go to the ends of the Earth. If he finds it he will check out the record, CD, tape or 8-Track to make sure it plays well. If it does he will let you listen before you buy it. If he sells it to you he will say “This record should play well. If it doesn’t bring it back and I will do everything I can to fix or replace it.”

He prays for the safety of each customer who leaves his store. God bless Gordy Arlin.
