Docs is basically a staple among collectors of vinyl and cds in DFW, yet i feel they could use a couple improvements. they have a very wide selection of vinyls and cds, more than any other physical store around, and yet their organization is lacking. things are semi-alphabetically sorted and semi-genre sorted, and while you eventually can find what you were looking for, it might take a bit. but my main issue is their prices. i understand they have a high mark up to stay in business, but a lot of stuff is overpriced. ive seen CDs here for $15 used that i could get at Half Priced Books for $4. their markup is ridiculous. especially the booths in the back selling antiques and other random knick knacks. im not sure if those are vendor booths though, so the prices may not be up to Docs. also kind of a side note, but the store is downright filthy. the employees there havent cleaned the place or the decorations since they moved locations (which they did a fee years ago), at least i presume, because a thick layer of dust coats just about everything in there. it adds to the aesthetic sure, but i cant help but think the store could do for a nice overhaul and some tlc. otherwise a solid place to find music and other random oddities and if youre in the DFW area looking to find cds or vinyls, youd regret not stopping here
Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenkins Boyd.
Jenkins, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Started as a wee lad slingin records at record conventions with my dad and loved it so much I decided to open the record store in 2006 (with a ton of help from my father, thanks dad!). We were initially in Hurst but have bounced around to 4 different locations over the years in need of more space. We have settled into a warehouse in The Foundry District in Fort Worth as it has plenty of space and is a perfect fit with lots of cultures and like-minded people. Come, check out inspiration alley behind the store!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Haha, tons of bumps in the road but nothing that was insurmountable, every day is a new lesson when you own your own business. Moving a record store is nothing short of a complete nightmare, every time I think I had it figured out I was almost instantly humbled. There is always some new obstacle, too many to name.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Since we opened the new location and decided to incorporate booths for vendors to sell their vintage wares in, there isn’t much we don’t specialize in. We have records, CDs, cassettes, 8 tracks, vintage clothing, stereo equipment, art, oddities, vintage furniture, pop culture memorabilia, comics, collectibles, concert t-shirts, games, posters, and much more.
We are known for our amazing selection and quality, we carry just about every genre and everything is cleaned and sleeved before it hits the floor. We’ve also been known to throw a hell of a party.
I’m most proud of our customers who have stuck with us through all the moves and hardships, they’re the real heroes.
Other than our selection and attention to detail I would say our customer service, we are always happy to help our customers with anything they may need help with.
What were you like growing up?
Sarcastic and goofy, so basically the same as now. Music and movies, so yeah, basically, the same as now.
