    Record Store Day 2014

    Saturday, April 19th 2014 - OPENING at 10am

    For the uninitiated, Record Store Day is an annual event where many bands & record labels release highly limited edition vinyl, available exclusively at select indie retailers. We are a participating shop and will have stock on absolutely every title available this year.

    For the full list of exclusive titles, click here.

    We cannot do any holds or special orders for any of these titles; all of them will be available first come, first served basis on April 19th. In most cases, quantities will be EXTREMELY limited, so we strongly encourage people to arrive early to avoid disappointment. We will be opening at 10am that day, and will have plenty of fun gifts and other swag to give away to our first batch of shoppers. Looking forward to seeing you all then… if not sooner!

    Welcome to Permanent Records!

    Hi, and thanks for your interest in our store!

    We’re located at 181 Franklin St in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, just a short walk from the Greenpoint Ave. stop on the G train. We are open 7 days a week, from 12pm – 8pm.

    We stock New and Used LPs, CDs, 45s & 12s in all genres. We try to make sure that our store has something for everyone. Sign up for our mailing list for weekly lists of new in-stock & back in-stock titles. If you have any immediate stock questions, please don’t hesitate to call the store at 718-383-4083. We’ll be happy to help you out.

    In addition to music, we also carry all sorts of accessories, such as replacement needles, cartridges & headshells designed to fit a wide variety of turntables. If your turntable isn’t giving you the sound quality it used to, that doesn’t mean it’s broken. You probably just need a new stylus, and we can help you out. We also carry slip mats, adapters for 45s, additional cabling, and cleaning kits.

    Lastly, if you’re looking to protect your vinyl records, we’ve also got all sorts of sleeves for you to buy. Paper & plastic, re-sealable and slip, for 7”, 10” and 12” records. They’re all here.

    Have old records you want to sell? Get all the details at our buying page.


    T-shirts & tote bags!

    We had intended to unveil these bad boys on Record Store Day, but we simply love them too much to wait that long. Our new baseball tees come in two different color schemes (pictured above) and are available now in your choice of size for $20 a piece. Our standard short sleeve tees are still here too, in black and white, and those are still $15 each. Canvas tote bags are also here for $6.99 and are ready to help you move your records to & fro like a pro. Come get some.
