We are here the posted hours. We don't arrive a 20 minutes late, or leave a leave an hour early, in case you were wondering. Yes, we've been asked.
We accept all major credit cards. This also would include any bank GIFT CARDS you may have. Bring 'em here! Buy some records!
We are but a few blocks from the Elgin Stop on the Metra Line. The Pace Bus Stop is also just blocks away on Chicago St, as is the bike path. There is ample parking at the Spring Street and Fulton St. Parking decks. All parking on Elgin City streets are free parking! For a reference point, we just just 2 blocks north of the Grand Victoria Casino and Festival Park.
A few words on the records on our site. We do not have every record in our shop on the site. Our New Vinyl section is the most comprehensive of our inventory. Our home page proudly features New Releases/Reissues in stock. Tap/click on a record for a brief capsule and buying options. The pre-loved used LP tabs are but a representation of the records we may have. We, literally, have 1000s of records in our modest shop with multiple genres; rock, pop, punk, metal, soul, jazz, R&B, country, reggae, foreign countries, soundtracks, Broadway, classical, harmonica, polkas, and others. Dollar records continue to be price at "3 for $1". Gather info from the site and stop by! Meet some new friends, say "Hi" to us at the counter, and dig some records.
Buying from our site. Of course you can buy records from our site. We have it set up so you can purchase items with our "Buy Now" buttons via Pay Pal. You can check out via Pay Pal, a modest shipping and handling charge will be added (usually $4.99 or $5.99) and we ship the next business day via Media Mail. If you were looking to make a bulk LP purchase, contact us and we will make a streamlined shipping charge back channel. We've shipped across the country.
We also buy your gently used records. We can look at/buy/take in records TUESDAY THRU SATURDAY only. We pay cash (sometimes check) or offer an in-store credit. We can't promise you wealth (sometimes nothing at all) but we can take a look at them. The best thing to do is bring them in since we can't make an assessment over the phone. Currently we are not in the market for classical, opera, Christmas, certain Big Band, Andy Williams, Mitch Miller and the Gang, 101 Strings, and things of that ilk.
We participate in Record Store Day! Record Store Day is the third Saturday each April (unless Easter falls that weekend) and we have been a participating store for several years. We post our list of RSD items we will have in stock two days before Record Store Day and we open promptly at 8am. We cannot order RSD titles for you nor can we hold records for you. A line usually forms on RSD by 5am and the line is first come, first serve. Join us on RSD throughout the day. There's usually titles available all day, not to mention our usual vast stock of New Releases/Reissues and preloved records. There is also a Black Friday Record Store Day which we also participate in. The 2019 BFRSD is November 29th. We'll post our list on 11.27.19. See our "News" page for more info as the day approaches.
In the meantime, we got some records to spin! Get your bad self over to Rediscover Records!
