Selling and Trading Used LPs and CDs:

The pandemic has caused us to reorganize all our procedures and operations, even our buying and trading policies. With fewer people in the store at any given time, as well as time limits on browsing to reduce contact and keep the lines that can form outside moving, we’re trying to keep the inspection of used merchandise outside of retail hours. If you have items you’d like to trade for store credit, please send us an email at redcatrecords@gmail.com and let us know a little about what you’re interested in getting rid of: artists, titles, condition, how many… full lists aren’t necessary, but helpful! Then we can get back in touch with you and let you know what we could use, and set up a time when you can drop them by. We ask you to leave them with us for a day or two so we can evaluate them outside of retail hours and give them our undivided attention, so as to be able to make you the best offer. Used vinyl drop offs will be at our back door entrance.


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.
