Description
Bananas Records is owned by Michelle and Doug Allen. You've heard the story before. The couple who had full time jobs working for other corporations. Doug was in environmental work and Michelle was a registered Nurse. We had a dream of our own business so we started a book store in 1977. As avid readers this was perfect for us. Then one day, at a garage sale, Michelle wanted a record and the lady would only sell the whole stack, so Michelle took the one record out and put the rest on a shelf in the store and every single record sold. So more records were purchased and soon the records over took the books and the book inventory was sold.

Over the years we continued to add vinyl of all types, even though the Compact Disc had come to be and of course we continue to purchase vinyl to this day. We are very hands on owners, so if you come visit, we will more than likely be there to greet you.

We have collectively over 20,000 sq. feet of space in three buildings. Our all vinyl warehouse which is 6500 sq feet. and our retail store on 22nd Ave N. which is over 11,000 sq. feet. Our audio warehouse is 6800 sq. feet filled with records and audio equipment. Our two story warehouse is where the vast amount of nearly 3 million LPs and 45's are stored. Our retail store has compact disc, movies, and more records for sale. We also offer discount records at this location. We get 1,000's of records in each week, so if you don't see something on our web page, please email us or keep looking for additions to our online site.

LOL! How in God's name, can you call yourself (on the front of your store building) "The World's Largest Records Store"???? Are you kidding? Are you not aware that Amoeba Records in Hollywood (Los Angeles) is the worlds largest independent record store?? And even aside from that, there are other indy stores all over the world that are larger than this shop

Well, Amoeba mostly sells new records, we have three buildings full of records, mostly used. Over 17,000 square feet. Have you been here? We have over 1 million 45s alone. We think it would be pretty hard to find our inventory numbers some place else.
