Important Update Regarding Curbside Pickup

Per the City of Chicago & State of Illinois Shelter In Place Regulations, as a non-essential business, we will no longer be able to accommodate curbside pickup. However, maintaining inventory is considered a minimum basic operation that non-essential businesses can continue to perform. The inventory must be taken to the post office or otherwise shipped. In light of this, we are still able to ship Items directly to you. Please read on for more information.

Ordering Music:
Shipping & Online Sales

We really want to keep serving your music needs. Not being able to accept customers at our retail location poses challenges, but here are some ways that you can count on us to get you the music that you’d like.

We’re happy to ship directly to you for a minimal fee. To take advantage of either of these options, simply click here to complete a Google form with your requests.

We have many new (not used) LPs & CDs in stock. Check out a partial list of currently available new vinyl records here.  If you’re looking for something not on this list, please check out our new online store, which provides you access to thousands of titles that can be shipped directly to you. If shopping our online store, you will be able to process your credit card online.

If purchasing merchandise directly from our store, we can call you to securely process credit card payment by phone, which is preferred. We also accept payment via Venmo and Paypal.

Rattleback Records is a unique music store offering a myriad selection of new and used vinyl, CDs, cassettes, movies and more.

You’ll also find everything you need to accessorize your music lounge, including vintage barware, books, posters and art prints. Our stock is continually changing, so be sure to shop our store early and often so as not to miss out on that hidden gem you’ve been searching for; or the one you didn’t even know you needed until you saw it!

Rattleback Records is the culmination of a lifelong love of music and vintage treasures. Be sure to stop in to the store to chat about your favorite artist, whether it’s the Grateful Dead, the Dead Kennedys, or Dead Can Dance. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
