Continental Records & the Corona Virus

Continental Records is still open for business - orders placed now by telephone or E-Mail will be shipped to you within seven days of your order

Before 1990 Continental Records had four employees “pulling” and shipping orders. Since 1990 I have been the only employee. With Corona Virus in the news daily I placed myself in “self imposed lock-down” on March 10 and will continue to be in isolation until further notice

If you are locked up at home now is a good time to peruse our catalog and place your order. Questions? Lonely (like me)? Give me a call (Toll-Free) at 1-800-494-6129

About Continental Records Company Ltd

We commenced operation in 1970 with the purchase of all the 45 RPM stock 
of Zirkon Record Company of Montreal. Zirkon produced records between 1958 and 1963 with licensing from many USA labels including Roulette, End, Gone and Coed. We were incorporated under the laws of Ontario in 1982. Our firm is a full-time business - not a hobby or a net only business. We subscribe to, and abide by, the rules of the Toronto Better Business Bureau. 

We are not a "vinyl store"  or a "collector store." We do not specialize in used, rare or "original label" products - we are a 45 RPM record sales company that features one of the world's largest catalogs and inventory of brand new 45 RPM records and thousands of unique oldies CD titles.
