Toad Hall Books and Records

Toad Hall Books and Records Rockford's largest selection of vinyl records, comic books and vintage books. A Rockford tradition for over 40 years. The Naruz Family purchased Toad Hall in 2006 from the estate of Larry and Bev Mason, who amassed a huge assemblage of books, records, and other collectibles over a 30 year period.

Originally, Larry was running Buffalo records on 7th Street and Beverly was running the book store, Toad Hall, just down the road. The two met, fell in love, married and fused stores. They moved their combined inventory to Broadway into the old Rockview Pharmacy, which was a much larger building than either of their other stores. Toad Hall has proudly called this present location "home" for over 2

We believe in Rockford and reinvesting locally. On our time off we have been working hard on improving this house which is just a handful of blocks east of Toad Hall. It is now time to find a new owner. This beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bath ranch has been totally remodeled. We are down to the final details but we would love to have some Toad Hall fans in this house. Message us for a showing!

Thanks to Toad Hall, I found FIVE records that I've been looking for on Saturday. Love the store!
I bought it yesterday at Toad Hall Records in Rockford Illinois
Everyone at Toad Hall is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, I am loving my experience with vinyl again! They even repaired my turntable. Everything sold here, especially the vinyl is scrutinized, cleaned and inspected for quality, and they will even fix your warped records, folks.

Does anyone collect cassette tapes any more?
A big shout out to Nick and the team at Toad Hall Books and Records in Rockford, IL for fascilitating a great job having my vintage Pioneer SX-680 amplifier/receiver cleaned, re-capped and overhauled. I've had this receiver, along with my Pioneer HPM-40 speakers, which are still working, since 8th grade in 1978 - my first "decent" stereo system. Listened to and discovered a WHOLE lot of music on this thing over the years and it followed me all over the country during college and afterwards. Great to have my old friend back up and running again, and it sounds fabulous!
Just received my MOFI copy of Oh Mercy, thank you for the excellent packaging!!!!!!
The best album of there’s this record store is awesome if ur wanting a album or starting collecting albums again this is the place to go
Are you guys getting the Deafheaven 10 year Yellow swirl for the indie store release?
Website too slow. Lost most of my order sold out as I tried to add items and get to cart.
Santana 3 arrived safely today. Thanks so much.
