We’re not trying to re-invent the wheel over here.  We buy and sell music and movies. Do you really need to know more than that?  … well if you really do, then read on. 


Far from the “I’m here just to be seen” hipster hollywood record stores that dominated the scene back in the day, CD Trader was started as a hole-in-the-wall independent music and video store in Thousand Oaks, California in 1995.  Do you know where that is?  Not many do. 


CD Trader was started by a guy with a cd collection, a tape measurer, and two balls of steel!  While 90% of record and video stores have closed in the last 20 years, we have expanded, evolved and thrived! In 2005, we relocated to the charming Los Angeles neighborhood of Tarzana, where we’ve made our home amidst the strip malls and apes swinging from vine to vine.


CD Trader is one of the largest record stores in Los Angeles.  CD Trader is one of the largest video stores in Los Angeles. (And by “videos” we mean DVDs, Blurays, 4K and whatever they think of next).  We have an ever-changing selection of music and movies.  We specialize in New Vinyl and Used Vintage records! and Used CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Rays (and yes 4K)!  We also carry new releases in all formats including New CDs, New DVDs, and New Records (don’t say vinyls).  We also sell used books and cassette tapes.  You might even find a transcription disc, a brown wax cylinder, or a dictabelt if you look hard enough.  By god, we have posters and t-shirts too!!  If we don’t have it we can order it.


We offer an alternative to the cold impersonal world of social media, phone robot menus, and internet algorithms.  We offer you real people who answer the phone and do their best to help you find what you want, …to help you find that piece of your past, that piece of your story that means so much to you, whether it be a classic black and white film noir from the 40’s or the latest Tyler The Creator album, whether it be an Animal House dvd, an original UK pressing Beatles LP, an impossibly rare minimal synth grail, or that rare Record Store Day single that just came out.  Whatever you’re looking for, we hope you’ll look at CD Trader.
