All About Us

We Love Music

Formerly Classic Sound, Paula and Joe acquired this Chilliwack record business 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.

RECORD STORE DAY 2020

Record Store Day was a day that celebrated independent record stores all over the world with parties, in-store performances and special releases. The excitement in those early morning lines, and wondering if you would score the record you came for.....  

Since 2008, Record Store Day has grown into the world’s largest single-day music event for indie record stores across the globe. But in 2020, RSD and the world are different, and the event has been divided into three drop dates August 29, September 26, and October 24. 

RSD DROP OCTOBER 24


While prior RSD's were a celebration, in this unprecedented global situation, the focus of these RSD Drop dates is on supporting the stores and also the artists, labels, distribution and behind the scenes businesses - through revenue. Indie brick and mortar stores (not mall stores) need your support. 

Chilliwax will be open at 9:30 am pst Saturday, October 24 for in-store shopping; eight customers at a time. After and not before 11:00 am pst, you can email or call us for items you are looking for and pay by eTransfer. Pick up in the next week. Our store is new, and we do not have an online ordering system yet, but we are working on it! We do have a listing (excel spreadsheet) of all New Vinyl in stock; if interested, we'd be happy to send it to you. It's updated weekly.

Happy Record Store Day!!

We buy full collections of any size


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.
