The Record Exchange is Idaho’s largest independent music store, steadfastly expanding Idaho’s musical boundaries for over 36 years.

No matter the genre or format, new or used, we have it — even a modest wall of used cassettes remains among our extensive collections of CDs and vinyl. If we don’t have it, we can get it.

  • Vinyl accessories
  • Home and portable audio accessories
  • Clothing
  • Hats
  • Books

  • Candles
  • Gifts
  • Homewares
  • Toys
  • Action figures
  • Collectibles (including kidrobot)
  • Greeting cards
