About Us


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.

Swing by Record Breakers to check out our collection of new and used vinyl, everything from Jefferson Airplane to Edith Piaf to Merle Haggard, as well as the new releases everyone’s talking about. Stay tuned for an upcoming monthly showcase featuring local bands in our all-ages space.

*Fun fact: Breakers is now in the space that once housed Blind Pig Records. Our space has a lot of creative history. Stop in and visit to learn more.
