Are you a music enthusiast? If so, you’re probably well aware that record collecting is alive and well as ever. Record shops abound in cities of all sizes, and Chicago is no exception. In fact, there are some great record stores within just twenty minutes of Mondial River West.
First, we have Shuga Records. Shuga has a huge variety of genres, stocking everything from disco to opera to psychedelic rock. They sell a variety of formats, including LPs and singles in 7” and 12”. Their massive selection includes both new and used records. In addition, Shuga sells posters, comic books and even vintage yearbooks! You can take care of your collection with Shuga’s record cleaner and inner sleeves for your loose records. Finally, Shuga features numerous events and performances.
Next, we have Permanent Records. Here, you can buy LPs and 7” in a variety of styles, new and old. Permanent also stocks a huge amount of cassette tapes. Unlike most music stores, Permanent Records has their own music label which features new artists and re-released lost gems from decades past. Performances and events frequently take place at Permanent Records, ranging from rock bands to spinning DJs.
Buying vinyl records is far from dead— in fact, it is a fun and highly rewarding hobby for music lovers of all ages. Records are great to look at and hold, and best of all, they sound absolutely amazing. For good reason, records are the preferred format for so many music fans.
