Sanity: "The best music store!" Top 5 Page for this destination Geelong Shopping Tip by Marpessa
Geelong Shopping: 17 reviews and 18 photos
Sanity is one of the better music stores in Geelong. They have a huge range of CDs and DVDs. If they don't have it in instore then they offer to order it in for you.
There are often many great sales (like 2 CDs for $44 or 3 DVDs for $50). They have excellent customer service and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
Sanity also has a free magazine out every 3 months. It has all the latest on the CDs and DVDs coming out.
Sanity also has a digital kiosk. It's where you can create and compile your own CD from over 500,000 songs - it is also legal downloading (so the artists still get paid, and the quality is the same as on a normal CD - the only thing is that you don't get the cover art).
Please remember if you are from overseas, a lot of DVDs will only work for a certain 'region' of the world. Australia is Region 4, and unless it says on the DVD that it is '0' (All regions) or you have an 'all regions' DVD player, then the DVD will only work in Region 4 (which includes: Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, South America, Central America, Pacific Island and the Caribbean).
While Sanity's competitor JB Hi-Fi may have cheaper prices sometimes (although, unlike their slogan - they are *not* always cheaper), they have a huge lack in their customer service skills. If you want help while shopping and people who will give you an honest opinion, go to Sanity.
What to buy: Hmmm...
Try some Australian artists:
'Wolfmother' - Wolfmother
'Young Modern' - Silverchair
'Standing On The Outside' - Songs Of Cold Chisel (various artists covering their songs)
'Black Fingernails, Red Wine'- Eskimo Joe
'The Hard Road' - Hilltop Hoods
'Here Come The Drums' - Rogue Traders
(Or see my homepage for some of my favourites!)
What to pay: On average:
$6 for a CD single
$25 for an album
$30 for a DVD
Although, like I said, they usually have a sale going and can have some great bargains.
Address: Shop 1, Yarra Plaza (inside Market Square)
Directions: Located inside Market Square in a new area that opened July, 2006.
