Welcome to Penny Lane
Penny Lane is Christchurch's longest established independent record store trading in New and Pre-owned Records, CDs, DVDs.
The business was started in 1998 by owner Dave Howard who saw an opportunity in the marketplace and channelled his own personal passion for music and collectables to create a retail trading store where people could confidently buy and sell quality items.
In the years since, Penny Lane has built-up one of the largest collections of new and top quality pre-owned CDs, DVDs, vinyl records and collectables in the South Island and lately New Zealand through our reputation for paying top prices and going 'the extra mile' to find the rarest and most sought after items to add to customers collections.
Today, Penny Lane's range covers virtually ALL genres of new and pre-owned music, movies and television, presented at affordable price-points. New Chart, Top Sellers and Back Catalogue arrive daily, thanks to our ordering system with some of the worlds largest music distributors.
Our Christchurch stores in Sydenham and Eastgate Shopping Centre are magnets for customers from around New Zealand and around the world looking for the best in range, variety and value.
We believe our team is one of the best in the business with a combined experience, passion and expertise in buying, selling and enjoying music. We travel all over New Zealand buying collections to add to our selection.
Every pre-owned item we buy is thoroughly checked out by our team of experienced buyers and undergoes detailed examinations and scrutiny to ensure that the quality is good enough for Penny Lane to put out for sale.
Products are individually graded and in some instances, cleaned, recased or resleeved.
Our aim is to present a general pre-owned stock selection that is as close to ‘new’ product as possible.
Customers regularly visit us from all over the country looking to track down that missing part of their collection or the rare and unusual addition. Because of our commitment to our customers, we can often use our overseas contacts to track down what you may be looking for.
