AFK Books & Records

Record Store Day Pledge signed
Go here to find out about the pledge.

Virginia Beach's grooviest record store, AFK Books & Records, is a locally-owned and independently operated record shop, with lots of additional benefits. We stock over ten thousand new and gently pre-enjoyed vinyl records, with a focus on independent music, and we're adding more daily. We also stock thousands of new and used CDs and a wide range of music-based DVDs and books. We carry a range of great new turntables from Audio Technica as well as classic pre-enjoyed turntables.

We are looking forward to fully supporting the next Record Store Day event in April 2019, with hundreds of uber-rare records, plus thousands more in-store. Doors open at 6:00am when numbered tickets representing your place in line will be distributed. Line re-forms at 7:15am and sales begin promptly at 8:00am. First come, first serve and most products will be limited to one per customer. Sorry, we can't hold RSD goodness for anyone, even ourselves! (Whimpers) A tasty breakfast will be served from 6:00-8:30am. Yum! Raffles, free swag, munchies and beverages abound, all weekend long. Thanks for supporting indie retail. You rock! Don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook for breaking info on new vinyl releases and photos of recently arrived RSD goodness. Check out our store at See you soon!


AFK Books & Records is located at the intersection of Shore Drive and Pleasure House Road in the Chic's Beach Shopping Center (directly across from the Wawa on Shore Drive), in Virginia Beach, VA. We are just minutes from Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth and Hampton, via I-64 to Route 13 North (Northampton Blvd). If you live on the Eastern Shore, just take a right after you exit the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and you'll find us two blocks away, on Shore Drive.
