Ive been going to Chamber 43 consistently for well over a year now for different reasons: whether itd be for a casual visit, weekly and/or exclusive in-store events. Each visit has been nothing short of enjoyable. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. If they dont have a record that youre looking for, they are more than willing to help track it down for you which shows how above and beyond theyre willing to go for the community. This is an amazing addition to Highland Parks downtown area and I can easily foresee that theyll be bringing in new cultures and experiences to the community for many, many years to come.

The store has friendly, dedicated staff and features many events. As a local close to Highland Park, I can 100% say Chamber 43 is here to support the community. Competitive pricing, always expanding (I mean literally, they just doubled their store size) new inventory, rotating antiques/vintage items and rare vintage clothing. Im excited to see where the store goes next, it seems every year it makes drastic improvements. Also, check out their Open Mics on Monday!

Chamber 43 is an outstanding vinyl destination+ they have open mic nights as well: music, poetry, comedy, art ,etc! The owner David creates a fantastic environment for Pop Culture, past, present and future. Im very pleased with the 70s and 80s vinyl records and vintage magazines I have purchased here.

This place is my favorite record store, and I go to a lot of record stores. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and will recommend great music to listen to. Their is a wide variety of records to choose from, with all genres and the pricing is very good! Whenever I want to buy records, I always go to this store. It also sells clothing items, artwork, and books. This record store is the best record store!!!!!!

This place is a breath of fresh air. When you walk in youre immediately hit with a sense of wonderment. Not a typical record store as they also sell a variety of art, clothing, and various music and pop culture nostalgia. They host shows every month that are similar to tiny desk concerts . The staff is great and this store is a great addition to Highland Parks downtown area

Ive been to Chamber 43 throughout the changes of layout, inventory and staff. Not once have I regretted interacting with their outgoing and personal employees. Chamber 43 is exactly what Highland Park needed. Its in an excellent location (right on the main road in the middle of the town) and the hours are flexible. If youre looking for records you cant find in other record shops the owner, David, works with you and will keep you on a call list for when they do come across your desired record. There are a lot of hidden treasures throughout the store like limited edition paintings, private artists showcasing their treasured art, mixed consignment and other small businesses coming together to really make Chamber thrive.Thank you for opening such a innovating store!- Also a dog friendly store!!

Visited to find a couple of records, one of which I could find here. The other is on the stores search to find and let me know. To do justice to the place, you will need at least a couple of hours possibly three to browse. Lots to go through and select. The shop owner offered to play the records and even washed one for me to check surface noise reduction. Great atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Hope to return some time for more vinyls.

A really cool addition to Highland Park! I walked in and was surrounded by vinyl records and was very happy :) I’m a former DJ (old school) and can’t wait to come back again when I have more time to dig through the stacks of albums and see what I can find like I used to at Cheap Thrills in New Brunswick. All the albums are in clear plastic sleeves, you can tell they really take care of their albums as it should be. I didn’t get a chance to browse their 45 collection yet, but will do next time.

Wonderful little shop for the artistically and musically inclined. They keep expanding their products and include a ton of locally handmade clothing, jewelry, and a bunch of other things that Im not aware of for sure. David (the owner) is a gem, and his staff are actually passionate about what they do, which is refreshing. Its nice to see such a caring establishment in place of that awful vape shop run by that creep. I would and do recommend this place to everyone my little beady eyes make contact with!

It fun and entertaining to look through all of their wares, as the store sells more than just classic and modern records. Chamber 43 also sells clothing, jewelry, cds, and art pieces. A beautiful venue with so much potential for musical talent. Go check it out now!
