We went away for a short while but we're back and we can now be found upstairs at Waterloo Music where we are trading under our original name of Acorn Records.
In this new incarnation we have been joined by two prominent local vinyl specialists who are known respectively as Baldrecordman and Rock Wallaby Records. Between them they have introduced a huge range of pre-owned LPs along with masses of 7" and 12" singles. We also stock lots of brand new records alongside a vast choice of CDs.
Acorn opened its doors to the public for the first time in 1973 and has been serving the local community from that time until the present day. At first, we were known as Acorn Records but the name was later changed to Acorn Music to reflect the wider range of products stocked. The business has remained under the same ownership throughout, and its philosophy has always been to offer a wide range of music at competitive prices whilst offering a first class standard of service. Our new shop specialises in vinyl and CDs which is why we have reverted to the original name.
We have thousands of CDs and records in stock covering a wide musical spectrum and Acorn has always been noted for its huge range of Rock and Pop from early Rock N Roll right up to the latest releases.
There is also plenty to choose from in Jazz, Blues, Folk, Country, Reggae and World Music
We have been ordering CDs, LPs and DVDs for customers over many years and if we don't have it in stock we'll do all we can to obtain it for you. We have accounts with pretty much all UK record companies and have a wide range of contacts. If someone somewhere in the world holds stock of the item you require we should be able to get it for you.
Acorn is open from 10am to 5pm six days a week from Monday to Saturday. We are happy to take orders over the phone for dispatch by post, so feel free to give us a call if you can't make it to the shop or Contact Us by e-mail.
Acorn's extensive selection of records and CDs is in the same building as Waterloo Music's terrific range of musical instruments, accessories and music books plus their teaching and practice facilities.
All your musical needs are now catered for under one roof.
