The Record Centre is a beloved destination for music enthusiasts in Ottawa, Canada. Established in 2011 by founder John Thompson, our independent record store offers a carefully-curated selection of new and used records, as well as new and vintage audio equipment. In fact, The Record Centre was the first record shop to be chosen as a retailer by prestigious manufacturers Technics and Accuphase.

Located in the trendy Hintonburg neighbourhood, The Record Centre is a must-visit spot for anyone who loves music. Our knowledgeable staff is always on hand to help you find the perfect album or offer you recommendations based on your interests and musical tastes.

In 2022 we opened a second location, The Record Centre Too, to facilitate online order pick-ups. The new store, located just across the street at 1112 Wellington also offers a selection of discount records, CDs and cassette tapes for dedicated “crate diggers” and casual browsers.

In addition to our impressive selection of records and hifi equipment, The we also host in-store performances by local and international artists, DJ sets, album release parties and listening parties.

Whether you're a seasoned collector or a casual listener, The Record Centre is the place to be in Ottawa for all things music. With our friendly casual atmosphere, wide selection, and commitment to supporting the local music scene, it's no wonder our store has become a favourite among music fans in the area.
