The internet has this to offer about Peaches:
Years ago, in a time when record stores ruled areas of your hometown, a large behemoth of a store was formed. Known widely, Peaches Records & Tapes was created to be more than those local small record shops—it was designed to swallow them whole.
The goal? To be the one place that you would ever need to go to get all of your music, and anything related to it. Peaches Records & Tapes had a store in just about every large city across America. Finding one wasn’t hard. One you had the general location of one, it could easily be spotted by the large wooden LP cover constructs that adorned the building.
Oh, and the crates:
