May 14th Reopen Update

We have made the decision to keep our storefront closed for the time being, with plans to re-evaluate in early June. We will continue to offer curbside pickup, free delivery on orders over $60, and will be reintroducing bookings for private shopping sessions.

  • Curbside Pickup: please email us your want list to slothrecords@shaw.ca – we will respond to you within 24 hours (or as close as possible) with availability, pricing, and payment details. We currently accept etransfer and paypal for pickup orders.
  • Free Delivery: we will deliver your order for free within the city of Calgary for all orders over $60. Please be cognizant that we don’t use a professional delivery service and cannot guarantee immediately delivery. Generally deliveries will occur within 2-3 days of payment but if you need your items in a rush we encourage you to pick up from the store directly.
  • Private Shopping: please phone us at 403-265-6585 between noon and 5pm daily to book your private shopping session. We book in 30 minute increments and the store will be cleansed before and after every session. We ask that no more than 2 people be present for any private session.

We have instituted the following guidelines as it relates to anyone entering the store: 

  • Please proceed to the front counter to wash your hands and receive disposable gloves
  • Masks are strongly encouraged
  • If you feel under the weather or sick in any way, DO NOT COME TO THE STORE
  • Credit Card & Debit Card is encouraged. Cash is accepted but please note we cannot provide exact change.
  • Maximum of 3 people in the store at all times.

We would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes during this time period. It means more to us than you could ever know and we sincerely appreciate it.

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon.

Rent the Other Music Documentary and help out Sloth!

We are pleased to present the virtual screening of “Other Music”, a documentary on the rise and fall of this legendary record store, produced and directed by Puloma Basu and Rob Hatch-Miller. We are offering a special 72 hour rental of this movie, and every rental purchased through this link will result in Sloth receiving a portion of the rental proceeds. Plus, the movie is really great and a mustiwatch for fans of record shops!
