We strive to be the most trustworthy store on Discogs and feedback is of great importance for us, same as for you as a buyer. Best and most effective way to resolve matters is by sending a message or email to us ([email protected]). We promise we will answer quickly and work out a solution that makes you happy. Please do understand that we are a record store selling thousands of records every month, not only on Discogs, and sometimes a grading or something else can go wrong.

Our store:
We try to sync all records from Discogs to our webstore and our physical store. However, sometimes a record could have been sold on any platform before taken away from Discogs. We do apologize for this in advance and if that is the case, we usually offer a discount on the next purchase.
