I live on the Kitsap Peninsula between Tacoma and Bremerton. Last year I
set out to find the Beach Boys 78 set. I drove to four record stores listed
on the Record Store Day site, one each in Bremerton and Gig Harbor, two in
Tacoma. All were shuttered. There are still a few used record stores in
Tacoma, but none that I called had the set.
