For Music Lovers
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.

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 are in the processing of cataloging our New Vinyl and would love to share a listing with you at your request! Just fill out the form at the bottom of this site.
It is April now and spring is springing outside! Record Store Day typically holds their annual event this month but the pandemic has effected both this and last year’s events. For 2021 it was announced that Record Store Day will be split into two different “drop dates” to happen on Saturday June 12th and Saturday July 17th.
Chilliwax will be participating in this event!
All of the releases for both of these “drop dates” were announced through the Record Store Day website. You can check all of those out – nearly 500 exclusive releases including re-issues, brand new albums, compilations, and more right here.
If you find something on this list you really want, how does this work? 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 both of the drop dates. However, we are trying to get an idea of how many of each item to order – so feel free to comment in an email to us, or on our social media pages, with any releases you especially want to see us well stocked with!
We will be back soon with a separate announcement for what our store will be doing exactly for both of those dates (probably no live music still) and we will let you know the hours for both of those Saturdays.
We Buy Records
We Pay Cash! (or eTransfer)
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.
