Incredibly huge store with more than 3 million records in vinyl!
Bananas Music is owned by Doug and Michelle Allen. They had a dream of their own business so they started a book store in 1977. As avid readers this was perfect for their. 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 they 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.
Doug is a recognized record appraiser and does appraising for private individuals and insurance companies.
They have collectively over 17,000 sq. feet of space in two stores. Their all vinyl warehouse which is 6500 sq feet. and their retail store on 22nd Ave N. which is over 11,000 sq. feet. Their retail store has compact disc, movies and more records for sale. They also offer discount records at this location. They get 1,000’s of records in each week.
