Located in Raleigh, N.C., Schoolkids is the Triangle’s first home of the legendary mom and pop indie store chain. Founded in 1973, Schoolkids Records is one of the longest running record stores in the entire country and in 2013 celebrated their 40th Anniversary.

The city beats to so many drums, from a deep knowledge of indie rock, alternative rock to a heavy devotion to metal. Schoolkids features the largest selection of vinyl (new and used), indie rock, bluegrass, alternative and metal in the Triangle and many say, from miles around. From domestic to import, from California to Sweden to Australia, the Raleigh location has it, along with a vinyl section that’s been awarding winning in reader’s polls winning the Independent Weekly's Best Record Store for 15 straight years, every year the award has been given.
