After 15+ years as an exclusively online entity (with occasional remote sales), we've finally moved our massive warehouse into a new space that has room for retail. It's been a dream come true for us. We get to put cool stuff on the walls, listen to music all day, recommend new things to customers, and work on fine-tuning our web presence. (in addition to this website, we are currently active on Amazon and eBay). We have a large $1 section in our LPs & CDs - gotta get rid of the old to make room for the new...as well as 50c 45s. We also have new sealed LPs mixed in with more-than-a-dollar LPs. If you are a jazz or classical fan, we have tons on CD & LP (lots of jazz CDs at $1). Did I mention the large 78 section? or the new collection of music books and DVDs we just purchased? As we've been in the biz for so long, we've accumulated lots of cool ephemera to hang on the walls, too. Anyway...if you're in the Chicago area, or planning a visit, you should stop by and say hi. We are at 7155 W Grand Ave, which is 1 block East of the corner of Grand & Harlem. Grand is equidistant from the blue line and the green line - Harlem exit for both, and a short 15 minute bus ride to Grand. Also from the city, the Grand bus ends just 2 blocks to the east of us. The Metra has a Montclaire stop that is also a 2 block walk. There is metered parking on Grand, and limited free parking on Neva - the street just to the east of us. Our current hours are 10am-4pm Monday - Saturday - Noon to 5 on Sundays. If you're making your weekly visit to the world famous Caputo's or Kolatek's grocery stores, we're right there!
We can also make hour exceptions, if our hours don't work for you - just give us a call and we'll try to accommodate your schedule. Call during biz hours, or leave us a message at 773-771-4528.
We finally did it - we opened up a retail store!
