Used record stores also sell new stuff too so they have full label support in addition to labels purchasing ad buys and endcap space in these stores too. They also send them their marketing materials and promo copies to spin in these stores too...so there are positive side effects to secondary stores like this. Maybe the guy walks in to a store and wants a Pantera CD for $3.99 used but along the way finds a brand new Slayer box set for full price...win all around. Marketing $ are long gone and spent for a record released in 1994 so having someone holding a physical product 20 years later is better than no one. To a label all things considered they would rather have 100 used CD stores out there than 100 teenagers distributing music online.
