Waterloo Records

Waterloo Records is an independent retailer in Austin, Texas that has been an integral part of the city's music scene since 1982. The store derives its name from the original name of the Austin region, Waterloo. The store's original location was at 221 South Lamar Boulevard, just south of Lady Bird Lake. Waterloo Records later outgrew that 1200 sq. ft. space and moved ⅔-mile north on Lamar to their present location at 600A North Lamar.

Waterloo Records is noted for its knowledgeable staff and an emphasis on customer service. The store prides itself on "catering to the music consumer" and features a ten-day return policy for goods in new condition.
