Inventory / Shopping
Is Amoeba.com's Inventory the Same as Your Store Inventory?
No. Our new inventories for physical goods (CDs, vinyl, etc) are roughly the same, but used inventories are different across each store and Amoeba.com. Additionally, Amoeba.com sells digital downloads that are not available for purchase in the stores. The physical goods available for sale on Amoeba.com are a reflection of our stores' constantly changing inventories and many items are rare or one-of-a-kind. Some of the harder to find items listed are subject to availability. We will do our best to fill all orders placed, and will offer an immediate 100% refund for pieces that may have sold out prior to placed orders.
