Residents who are tired of exploring Provo during this summer's construction might want to check out Provo's newest stores for some relief - the Map Den and Reptile Records.
The Map Den, 87 N. University, might just give you an excuse to escape from Provo. Or maybe listening to music from Reptile Records, 125 W. Center, could provide you with enough relief.The Map Den has a complete line of road and city maps and features globes, U.S. geological survey maps, recreation trail maps and national park maps, said Sherwin Johnson, owner.
The Map Den is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Reptile Records specializes in rec-ords, tapes and compact disc imported or made by independent companies.
The recorded music sold at the store is termed "alternative music" by owner Susan Sampson. It is music not ordinarily heard on the radio and usually appeals to high school and college students, she said.
Reptile Records also buys and trades records, tapes and compact discs.
The record store is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
