Chicago's Largest Online and New Vinyl Record Store


We sell what no one else sells. We have what no one else has.


From classical to funk and everything in between, Shuga Records in Chicago has you covered. We are Chicago’s largest online and retail record store, with more 500,000 records, CDs, cassettes and other recordings. And we’re adding new stuff every day.

For the vinyl junkie in everyone, there’s no genre that we don’t have. And if you’re looking for something in particular, just ask us. There’s a good chance we’ll find it for you.


We share your passion for vinyl.

Former DJ Adam “Shuga Rose” Rosen has been a vinyl geek since he was 12 years old. After a car accident left him with a stack of medical bills, Adam launched Shuga Records as a small eBay store to sell vinyl from his personal collection of 5,000 albums.

What started out as a way to pay his bills quickly grew into a 7,500-square-foot retail store in Minneapolis. Adam’s store was filled with vintage and audiophile vinyl from many of the bands that got him hooked on DJing—including Underworld, Nine Inch Nails and the Future Sound of London.

For eight years, Adam’s store in Minneapolis was the place to find top-grade pressings from all genres of music, including newly released vinyl and local, independent musicians. Adam’s passion for vinyl along with his steadfast commitment to his customers helped make him a trusted source for quality vinyl.

He brought this passionate professionalism with him when he returned to Chicago in 2012 to launch Shuga Records with his right-hand man Will Johnston. Today, Shuga Records is Chicago’s largest online record store.

In addition to purchasing records through our online shop, you can also check out records in our Chicago store.



Quality Comes First


We are serious about quality vinyl.


At Shuga Records, we’re committed to giving our customers the highest quality records. We take this seriously, so you can feel confident that you’re getting the best product possible from us.

Just ask our customers—we have a 99% positive feedback rating from eBay.

All of our records are hand or electronically cleaned.
Each record comes with a new poly bag.
We take high-resolution photos of each record—front and back—to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting. We don’t use any stock images on our site.
We grade the record and the cover to let you know the accurate condition of every album you purchase from us.
We give you more information about each record you purchase than any other online record store.




Custom Grading System


We want you to know what you're buying from us.


We’ve gone beyond the outdated Goldmine system to create a modern custom grading system that will let you know exactly what to expect from any record you purchase from Shuga Records.
For more than 10 years, we’ve graded nearly one million albums with our consistent and accurate grading system. All of our recordings are visually inspected under high-intensity lights, allowing us to objectively assess the condition of everything we sell.

New Still-Sealed Mint (SS): When someone says something’s “Mint condition,” this is what they’re talking about. The album is sealed in its original packaging and has never been played.

Mint (M-): This is the highest grade for records that have been played. The album is in excellent condition and shows no visible signs of wear or damage that will affect sound quality.

VG+: While not flawless, the condition is very good, showing only minimal signs of use. Any visible blemishes should have minimal affect on play quality, though light surface noise maybe present at very quiet portions or between tracks. This is a record that should satisfy all but the most strict of collectors. There may be slight ring or cover wear, or minor writing on the cover.

VG: Vinyl may have scratches and/or other visual blemishes, but should play through without skipping or repeating. Light to moderate surface noise and/or crackle may be present, however not overly distracting. Covers may have moderate ring and/or edge wear, cut-outs / hole punches, or a moderate seam splits.

VG- and below: Let’s be honest: sound quality is low and the cover may be in very poor shape. We consider any item graded at or below VG- as a LOW GRADE item. We only sell albums rated VG- and above unless a record is so rare that its presence in the collection transcends the poor quality of the vinyl or cover.
