Record Store Day Black Friday 2019 List

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

Below is our Black Friday list. A quick note: as you may have heard the major labels have been having a heck of a time the last six months or so getting their products distributed. Feel free to Google it and see all sorts of articles on the subject. Because of this, unfortunately, some Black Friday titles will not arrive on time. We are told that it could take a few more weeks for everything to be shipped. We are sorry if some items on your want list won’t be here tomorrow. Hopefully you will find some other things to tide you over.

We will be open in Villa Park (22 S. Villa Ave.) at 10AM. First come first served as usual. Hope to see you there!

Customer Appreciation Day!

Hello friends!

Just a quick note to let you know that we are teaming up with our friends at Cornerstone Used Books and are having a Customer Appreciation Day this Saturday, October 3rd, in Villa Park From 9AM-5PM all used vinyl (and books) will be on sale. There will also be giveaways, treats and live music from singer/songwriter Johnny Monaco at 1:00. We couldn’t do this vinyl record thing without your support. This is our little way of saying thanks. Hope you can make it out! (22 S. Villa Ave., Villa Park, IL)





The warehouse has been moved!




empty warehouse


Looks strange, right? The records have been moved, we’re settling into our new digs. We should be good to go by the time our next warehouse sale rolls around in August. Check this space for all updates. In the meantime visit us in Villa Park at Cornerstone Used Books. Thousands of records there for your browsing pleasure. Restocked every couple of weeks or so. And open ’til 8PM on Wednesdays for the rest of the summer. Stop on by!

Extended Wednesday Hours This Summer!

We will now be open in Villa Park on Wednesdays until 8PM. So go home after work, have some dinner with the family and then come on out and browse some vinyl!

Last minute warehouse moving sale!

Well, looks like we’re moving warehouses once again. Seems like we do it every couple of years. Keeps us on our toes I reckon. Fortunately we’re only moving a couple of buildings over from our current Schaumburg location. But if you move 300 feet or you move 300 miles you still have to box everything up and load it onto a truck. So the less we have to move the better.
That is why we’re having an unscheduled warehouse sale this Saturday, May 23rd. We will be there from 8AM-1PM. And we’ve got LOTS of new stuff. So new in fact that some of it might not be priced on time. So please bear with us. But it will definitely be worth it. Lots of records that you are going to want to get first dibs at. 
Some crazy good deals will be had. Make us an offer. We might surprise you. 
You can find us at 700 Albion Ave., Schaumburg. Look for the Ink Well Printing sign. Park in rear, enter through back door.
Hope to see you there!

Warehouse sale plus Record Store Day items!

Warehouse sale this Sunday, April 26th, from 9AM-1PM. Lots of records added since last sale. Plenty of $1, $3 and $5 records, which will be half off on Sunday.

We will also have our remaining Record Store Day items available. We also got in some records that were delayed and not ready in time for RSD. First come, first served. No reserving.
