For Music Lovers
All About Us
We Love Music
Paula and Joe acquired this Chilliwack record business from Classic Sound in March, 2020. We’ve been in the record business for many, many years. We met while working at Kelly’s Stereo Mart in the late ‘70’s - Joe was the National Record Buyer and Paula, his secretary. Fast forward to 2016 when we owned and operated Underground Music in Kelowna for 2.5 years.
We returned to the Lower Mainland to be near our family in 2019 and found retirement wasn’t ready for us yet. Karl at Classic Sound agreed to share his space in downtown Chilliwack. Paula & Joe are operating as Chilliwax Records and Karl, as Classic Sound, with high quality audio equipment. A match made in Chilliwack!
The cornerstone of our business success has always been our relationship with our Customers. That is why Chilliwax Records will be working hard to ensure the communities of Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley have an enjoyable record shopping experience. Come share the love of music.
We promise to provide you with the best records for the best price.

We Sell Vinyl Records and more....
NEW and Vintage Vinyl
We make sure our customers’ musical needs are met by selling them great quality records.
From 60’s - 70's classic Rock, to Hip Hop and Metal, we’ve got something for everyone.
We have recently expanded our METAL section! Our Jazz and Blues are always being updated with new vinyl titles and used from incoming collections. We are pretty sure we have every soundtrack there is! Country? All the classics plus new country like Colter Wall, Morgan Wallen, Carrie Underwood....
Crooners and Divas, World, Grunge, Reggae, Comedy, Children's, Folk, Easy Listening, Classical....we have what you are looking for!
Posters? Huge selection of all the latest artists, movies and classics. We have decorated more walls in Chilliwack than Benjamin Moore! We also carry a great selection of pins and patches! Come check us out!
We love Special Orders! It is impossible for us to stock everything, but we do invite you Special Order something you would like us to bring in. No deposit required, but we ask that you pick your title up as quickly as possible when notified of its' arrival. If you are unable to pick up within a few days, we can arrange for prepayment by eTrans or credit card.
Also, we are at the mercy of our suppliers, so when we say it may take months for the item to arrive, we appreciate your patience as we all wait. Please consider that when we call to tell you your item is in and you 'already got it as a gift' or 'bought it somewhere else', it may be difficult for us to now sell your Special Order.
That being said, we learn from you! Some Special Orders become hot selling items as we often bring a copy in for ourselves when we see what we've been missing! Thank you for supporting our small business!
We Buy Records
We Pay Cash! (or eTransfer)

Do you have just a few albums or hundreds? Maybe you're spring cleaning or, (we feel your pain) downsizing? When you are ready to part with your collection, and want it to go to a good home, we'd love to take a look at it. Joe at Chilliwax is a courteous, professional and will look through your entire collection to get a good sense of the fair value.
We pay fair prices for your used, previously loved vinyl
If your collection is 100 or less, please pop into our store and we'll gladly take a look! If you have a large collection, we can arrange to make a house call to view your treasures.
Record Store Day
Record Store Day is April 22 2023!
What is Record Store Day? It is a WORLDWIDE event celebrating Independent Record Stores and this year the drop date is April 22! For 2023, over 230 special record titles are being released, and you can ONLY find them at your local indie record store - that's us! You will find the full list of 2023 exclusive releases here.
If you find something on this list you really want, here’s how it works.....We cannot do any special orders or set anything aside for anyone off of this list – we must operate on a first come first serve basis on Record Store Day. That most likely means a lineup!
Artists releasing RSD exclusives include Björk (a remix 12-inch), Blur (the first vinyl pressing of a B-sides compilation), the Rolling Stones (a colourful pressing of Beggars Banquet), Sigur Rós (a 10th anniversary repress of Kveikur), Wilco (an alternate version of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot titled Crosseyed Strangers), Ramones (outtakes and original mixes from Pleasant Dreams), Chief Keef (the first vinyl pressing of Mansion Musick) and much, much more.There are also lots of live albums, including ones by the Black Keys, the 1975, Taylor Swift, Van Halen, Nas, Pearl Jam and the Cure!
