Red Cat Records is an independent record store in Vancouver, voted one of the top ten indie stores in Canada by our customers (CBC 3 Searchlight). In 2016, we opened up a second location in the Hastings-Sunrise neighbourhood. We’re known for our excellent customer service, music knowledge, and eclectic selection of new & used LPs, CDs, turntables and accessories.

Red Cat takes its name from Buddy the Cat, an enormous feline that ruled the store until 2006. Though the store smells better now, he’s missed by many. He even inspired a concept album by legendary guitarist Ry Cooder, titled My Name Is Buddy.
