INDEPENDENT PURVEYORS OF GREAT MUSIC SINCE 1976
Rough Trade was established in 1976 by Jeff Travis, as a unique concept combining a record label, distribution and retail store. However, in the 1980s, the record shop branched off from the label and distribution, paving the way for Rough Trade to evolve into what it is today.
With over 100,000 products, including vinyl, CDs, books and merchandise, Rough Trade offers an extensive collection that caters to a diverse range of tastes. With several retail stores located in both the UK and the US, Rough Trade has expanded its reach to serve a global customer base.
Rough Trade has also collaborated with various production houses and artists, solidifying its position as a leading authority in the music industry. As a result, it has earned a reputation for its exceptional customer service, knowledgeable staff, and its commitment to promoting new and emerging talent.
