If that record store was in the little strip mall at the top of the hill it was Rhino Records. They have since moved, but are still in business in New Paltz (and, more recently, Kingston, NY). I was one of the early employees at the store. https://www.facebook.com/RhinoRecords/
If, on the other hand, that store was at the very bottom of the hill, it was Jack's Rhythms, also still in business (albeit under new management). http://www.jacksrhythms.com/
If it was halfway down the hill on the right and it was run by a crabby drunk, then that was Kelly. I've forgotten the name of the place, and I'm pretty sure it had already disappeared by 1989.

Mark Zip — Carl reminds me that it was V-Note Records, Kelley's store. Definitely still part of the New Paltz scene as of Feb '89.
