We Buy Used LPs and CDs

Due to COVID-19 Protocols, Red Cat Records is not currently buying or trading LPs during open hours. Please read the info below on how to go about selling or trading your LPs. 

If you have items you’d like to trade for store credit, please give us a call at (604)-708-9422 or send us an email at redcatrecords@gmail.com

1) Used Vinyl: Please email us a list, we’d be happy to chat about what sort of records you are looking to part with. Albums and jackets need to be in excellent shape to be considered for purchase. If we are interested in the LPs we can arrange a time for them to be dropped off before we open. Please email or call us to get in touch.

2) Used CDs: can be accepted as a donation, they need to be in excellent shape to be considered for resale, so that being said any titles we cannot use we donate to our neighbourhood YWCA Thrift Store. Used CDs are not big sellers these days, but this system prevents them from going in the landfill if you are looking to make space and part with them. If you have a higher end CD collection such as box sets, or specific genres such as Metal, Jazz & Hip-Hop these can be considered for purchase or store credit. Please email or call us and let us know what you are looking to part with and we can go from there. 

3) Cassettes: Same deal as used CDs, but looking for tapes that are nice and clean and still function!

Special Orders

Looking for something not in the online store? In order to keep physical interactions to a minimum, please give us a call at (604)-708-9422 or email us at redcatrecords@gmail.com to place a special order. Thanks!

Concert Tickets (In-Store Only)

All ticket prices are before applicable service charges. Service charges are 20% of the cost of a ticket to a maximum of $5.00 per ticket.

We can’t hold tickets unless they are charged over the phone with a credit card. There is no extra charge to charge tickets over the phone with a credit card. Credit card information is not kept on file.

Sold out” on a ticket listing means that we are sold out at our location. If there are any remaining tickets left, they can be bought through an external online seller such as Ticketmaster, Ticketfly etc.

Off sale” on a listing means that the promoter has pulled the tickets from our location due to the show being close to sold out online. There may still be remaining tickets available online through the seller carrying tickets for the show.

Ticket Refunds for Cancelled Shows

You can now get a credit card refund for cancelled shows at our store during our regular open hours, seven days a week, 12:00 – 6:00pm. Please bring your tickets. If you do not have a credit card, we can arrange an e-transfer. Please refer to the list of shows on our Postponed & Refund Status for Tickets page for the current status of the concert you’re interested in returning tickets for. Thanks!

If you do not live in town and you bought tickets from our store for a show which has now been cancelled, please email us at redcatrecords@gmail.com with the subject line “Ticket Refund Request” and include the following information:

  • Your name in the body of the email
  • Your email address to accept an e-transfer
  • Your phone number
  • A photo of the tickets showing the entire ticket

An e-transfer refund will be sent to you if eligible. Please allow up to 7 business days for processing. If you have any questions, please email us at redcatrecords@gmail.com.

At this time, we are able to refund only those shows which are officially “Cancelled,” and not designated “Postponed,” as the work to determine what arrangements can be made for future reschedulings and make-up dates continues. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work with the promoters to get the answers you’re after as quickly as possible!
