We added this place as a quick stop to pick up a CD my daughter wanted to listen to on our road trip. We spent far too much time (and money) in this place. It was a great way to bond with my kid and there was so much to see. The customer service was great as the person who rang us up took time to talk about our music purchases and seemed to really care.
Been visiting ever over 10 years. Every time the employees are unfathomably rude. You can be the most respectful person and they’ll still treat you like dirt. I’m too nice of a person making excuses for them every time (ex. Maybe their parents have an illness they’re very mad at the world etc.). This week was the last straw, and proved to me that you will encounter a rude employee every time. They have a job at a nice place in the heart of Hollywood. The attitude needs to change. All of this stuff you can get online. Make yourselves unique, and give the customers a pleasant experience. This place is like the restaurant in Vegas called ‘Dick’s Last Resort’ where it’s their thing to be rude, and you go into it knowing this, so you have to have a sense of humor. Even ‘Dick’s Last Resort’ will have the decency to give you, “normal” service when they can tell that you’re not in the mood for attitude. Amoeba does not have a sign warning you of this kind of experience. They will be rude to you even when it’s apparent that you’re not feeling great, and would like a nice nostalgic escape exploring music.
