Jerry-Weber-and-his-son-WillieJerry Weber, right, and his son WillieAs if Jerry's Records wasn't already a slice of heaven, now the famous Squirrel Hill vinyl store is celebrating Black Friday and Record Store Day #2 with the opening of the new “Bargain Basement” in the cellar.

There you will find LPs, CDs, tapes, etc., for $1 or $2, and 45s for 50 cents.

"I had to rent the basement to get more space," Pittsburgh's favorite "hoarder" Jerry Weber explained.

"No more Vinyl-Paloozas," he added, referring to the summer sale at the Pittsburgh Irish Centre. "This is a 360-day-a-year Vinyl-palooza. No more Irish Centre and packing boxes and driving trucks around."

You'll get your fix of Kansas, Moody Blues, Journey, Billy Joel and Rod Stewart down there, and a whole lot else.

A few weeks ago, he says, "I got into a hoarder’s house in Ohio. The guy died and his wife called and said, 'Get this [s---] out of here. He had 5,500 jazz CDs, like 300 different Louis Armstrong CDs. I'm selling them for two bucks."


Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 2136 Murray Ave., 2nd Floor. Call 412-421-4533.
