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
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 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.
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 often bring a copy in for ourselves when we see what we've been missing! Thank you for supporting our small business!
RECORD STORE DAY 2022
Friends! We had a fantastic Record Store Day on April 23 so THANK YOU! The live music was amazing and the sun shone! We still have product left and some delayed/backordered product is expected this week. Keep an eye on our social media accounts!
The next mini Record Store Day is Saturday, June 18th 2022. This was a safety net date for product they knew would not make the April drop date.
Again, all of the releases for this “drop date” are linked here on the Record Store Day Canada website and social media sites. Scroll down to JUNE 18. These are exclusive releases to independent record stores and include re-issues, brand new albums, compilations, and more.
Please review the list and let us know if there is something you really want us to bring in! We cannot hold it for you, but we can order it! Please fill out the Find My Record form above, message us on social media, email or drop in with your list! We do not order every title - only what we know will sell or what has been requested!
RSD rules are that we cannot set anything aside for anyone – we must operate on a first come first served basis! That means you might have to be here early to get your treasure! Also, only one copy of any title per customer - we cannot sell you more than one!
WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT TIME WE ARE OPENING CLOSER TO THE DATE!
THANKS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL INDEPENDENT RECORD STORE!
