Olympic Records – 580 Wickenden Street, Providence Rhode Island  02903
  Open

At a destination wedding to Providence (the happy couple went to Brown), I found the top record store Providence had to offer sitting just around the corner.  Opened six years ago by Kevin Morosini, pictured below, the store is a nice size, and has many records in many genres to offer.  You can listen before you buy, in case you have any doubts, or forgot what the record sounded like.  And he has any number of 45 boxes (like the one he is holding that I bought below) as well.  Recommended on your next trip to Providence.

In addition to a psychedelic 45 record box (picutred above) I also bought the Gestures’ Run Run Run a 60s garage record on Soma, and the Byrd’s 45 Eight Miles High with a picture sleeve.
Here’s a link to an article that appeared in Providence Journal on December 1, 2016 Providences Olympic Records Caught Vinyl Wave about the store and its history.
