Greetings and good wishes to everyone…
Fall has arrived and you know what that means.
RECORD STORE DAY – BLACK FRIDAY!
Friday Nov. 24th is the national Record Store Day black Friday edition.
As usual we will be ordering many of the special, limited edition items for this sale.
October 17th is the target date for the list to be released to the public.
You can go to Recordstoreday.com on that date to view this year’s offerings.
Our hours will be somewhat different for this event as it has been in past years.
Friday we will open at 9:00 am (one hour earlier than usual.)
We will close at 7:00 pm
Saturday will be the regular hours
10:00 am to 6:00 pm
Just as we have done in the past there will be a storewide, two-day sale as well. Our sales are usually significant, after all, IKO’s only has sales two day a year (not counting the Sunday Secret Sale on the Sunday before Christmas…Sssssh! Don’t tell anyone it’s a SECRET!!)
Hope to see you there.
Enjoy the season.
We are a fully dedicated “bricks and mortar” music store. Now in our 26th year we specialize in new and pre-owned vinyl, CD’s and carry a limited selection of pre-owned DVD’s, cassette tapes, occasional relevant memorabilia, and stereo equipment related primarily to the LP experience. The best way to fully realize what we do, of course, is to stop in.
Monday thru Friday 11:00 am to 7:00 pm
Saturday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm
We are closed on Sunday
Thanks for visiting the site. We look forward to meeting you soon!

IKO’s carries a wide, diverse inventory of new release vinyl LP’s and CD’s. We also do special orders every week. Place your order by closing on Saturday And I can usually have it in by 2:00 p.m. on that following Wednesday. New releases come out every Friday with a few holiday exceptions.
Pre-owned records and CD’s are primarily the heart and soul of IKO’s Music Trade and pretty much dominate our available inventory. I have always been selective about titles and condition of the records I buy and sell. What I pay for recordings is based on artist, title and condition. In regards to LP’s, both condition of the record and the jacket matter greatly. Original issue, or re-issue, record club editions, imports and what I have in inventory to begin with are other things that effect purchasing as they all determine my pricing. As is the case with any thing brought in with the purpose of selling or trading it is best to do this between the hours of 11:00 am and 5:00 pm. Mon. thru Fri. I am almost always in during these hours. Saturday you should probably call first just to make sure. It never hurts to call first. Answering a few questions before hand can help with what you should or should not bring in.
We carry a number of Record maintenance supplies, some replacement cartridges, a number of different LP and 45 sleeves for both the inner record and outer jacket. IKO’s also provides a professional grade cleaning service for 12” vinyl records. Other items you can occasionally find are selected Stereo equipment, used DVD/Blue-ray discs, pre-owned cassette tapes, an occasional 8-track and we sometimes have a few laser Discs as well.
I got back into listening to albums when my wife and daughter bought me a record player for my birthday in 2015. I immediately went to IKO's Music Trade for 2 reasons; because they've been there for 20+ years, and because I remember the owner was super helpful one time when I went in to sell some old CD's I had. The result was amazing! Paul is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to music and artists. He went out of his way to teach me everything I needed to know about starting and caring for a record collection. I love the layout of the store and the ease of browsing through newly traded in albums as well as brand new releases. I found the experience to be outstanding and I've been going in to IKO's every single week for the last 2 years. And thanks to Paul, I've broadened my musical tastes, and now own over 250 albums. I would recommend IKO's Music Trade to people who are just starting to listen to records, as well as the veteran collectors.
