Record Breakers started thirty years ago in 1988 as a suburb storefront in Hoffman Estates, IL. In 2007, then-owner Robby Glick migrated Breakers to Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood, where it took up residence on the second floor of Reggies – an all-in-one bar, concert venue, record store and rooftop bar. After nearly 10 years at 2105 S. State St, Robby has passed the ownership torch to long-time employees Colin Brennan and Eric Kratz, and under this new ownership, Breakers has relocated once more to a brand new storefront home: this time on Milwaukee Avenue in Avondale.
We buy, sell and trade used vinyl and cassettes, and offer up an impressive selection of band t-shirts, turntables and collectibles – band stickers, patches and posters. We also repair turntables!
