Bull Moose is everything that Newbury Comics was in the 90s. They've got a great selection (a TON of vinyl for the geeks like me) and a good amount of toys and games and other fun stuff. I could spend a few hours here easily.

My boyfriend and I decided to visit while in Portland and it was a good visit both times. He ended up getting True Lies used (in excellent condition) in a white sleeve for 97 cents. I got a season of Deadwood (season two I believe) in two white sleeves for 97 cents (lightly used, six discs). It's fun to see... More

Bull Moose Music is much more than music...it is video games, books, gift items, and more. There are many locations throughout Maine, but I usually go to the downtown Portland, Scarborough, and South Portland branches. The staff are all extremely knowledgeable as well as helpful. They carry old, new, hard to find, and used merchandise...they will gladly check if their... More

Bull Moose is an experience. You can spend hours looking through all of the music, including CDs and vinyls. It was a great place to peruse on a cold rainy afternoon in April with my children. Everyone enjoyed looking around and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

My family and I were in Portland, ME. last weekend; after asking about any music stores from another merchant, I was directed here. With some trepidation I walked down the stairs into their store and immediately fell in love. The selection, the vibe and the staff all made for an outstanding experience. All 4 CD's I wanted they had; if... More

I am a big fan of collecting vinyl records. I like new records and on occasion I will purchase used, mint condition, vinyl. Bull Moose has a great selection of both and their prices are very competitive. The people who work their could not be nicer. They went out of their way to help me purchase vinyl record shippers, so... More

I'm from MA but my family has a house in the Portland area. I make it a point to visit Bull Moose every single time I am in the area. Whether it's the Portland or South Portland location, they have the best selection and price.

I'm an avid audiophile. That we have Bull Moose is a godsend. Their prices excellent, and their stock diverse and eclectic: it's hard to beat Bull Moose. And they have a swell Tewards Programme also. As well as online services...

We are lucky in Portland to have Bull Moose music. They must be one of the last independent record stores on earth and it seems they are thriving, even recently opening yet another location in Southern Maine (Mill Creek South Portland). Their selection leaves little to be desired and if they don’t have what you are looking for they will... More

Bull Moose has such a huge selection of CDs and DVDs that you could spend several hours browsing here. My husband and I were there for at least 2 hours. We found Season 1 of the TV series "Dukes of Hazzard", which has not been available at many other music stores we searched in. If you like music and movies,... More
