Kops Records

Posted by Staff / Posted on October 11, 2010

Kops RecordsKops Records is committed to keeping 45s in circulation, with boxes of singles in every genre, stocked next to used and new vinyl. Kops has evolved over the years, from oldies shop to DJ store to collector's hub without every really changing its focus - a consistency that's almost baffling considering how much the music industry has changed.

I love Kops. I've been there a few times and the staff have actually taken the time I ask my name and introduce themselves. Makes me feel right at home.

I went numerous times to Kops and found the staff well informed and extremely courteous , the soul,r&b ,rock sections are staggering in the choices that they have.

I love this place and go there every week or two. They've stepped up their selection a lot and seem to be on top of everything coming out, in addition to the tons of mint vintage they put in every week.
Wish I knew where they were getting it.

Having just initiated myself into the world of vinyl over the last year, this place was a great find. The staff is incredibly friendly and the lack of pretension is appreciated. Prices are reasonable and if you are on the fence about a particular record they are always prepared to cut you a deal to make sure they walk out happy.

The staff is very friendly and resourceful. I talked to Nick who was happy to help me find exactly what I was looking for. I'm currently indulging myself on the jazz soul record he recommended to me. Thanks :)

This is probably the best vinyl store in Toronto. Exceptional quality, super organized, and top-notch staff. The prices are admittedly pretty steep but that's what you get for the quality they provide.

I made a mistake by saying that I love kop's records. I been going there for a for some time now. I don't care how much I pay for an lp from them. I was treated like crap at kop's. I am not going back to that store never again.

I went to Kopps records a couple of times but I never buy anything frm the store coz they overpriced their vinyl records&mosy of the time the vinyl records are warped.They have bad customer service too I witness one incident my bf was a frequent buyer&customer at Kopps they gang up on him.The employees told him to keep a warped record&they did not replace it.another I incident a lady employee their said see see the record is not warped& told my bf thru would not do returns for warped record&no money back guarantee.She did it sarcastically in the prescience of lots of people inside the Kopps in queen.The owner should do some evaluation if they hired the right employees at Kopps for both store queen&yonge&bathurst.The employees should learned good customer service coz if I will rate them 1 for needs improvement.

I want to make a clear clarification frm those employees of Kopps records my bf never burned any of his vinyl records coz he does not have any vinyl recorder.He loves to collect all original vinyl records actually he spend a lot of money frm your store&was a former customer there but he stopped going to your store coz you don't do exchange frm warped record you sell in your store.Me&my bf never feel bad that you band us frm your store actually were happy to go to other vinyl record store who provide us with quality vinyl record&treat us with some respect that you guys can't accept that you failed to do that so we will never ever go anymore in your store.You should treat your customer fairly&with some respect.Never give false accusations coz what your saying is never true in the first place.Gud luck hope your business will last if you treat your customers so badly.

I can remember shopping for records here in the 70's maybe 80's, either way its been around a long time and has street credibility. Don't forget to check upstairs for the vintage vintage, mostly 45's with a good Canadian rock collection.

Prices and inventory are very reasonable, the collection esoteric. I will keep going back!
