The Exclusive Company

About Us

Wisconsin based indie record store


The Exclusive Comany’s owner and founder Mr. G. is remembered by his staff who proudly continue his legacy throughout each of our 5 locations. RIP Mr. G, and as always, “Say it with me”!


As America’s Oldest Full-line Independent Record Store, The Exclusive Company has seen the music industry transition from 78s to digital downloads. Prior to opening the doors of its first retail location in 1956, The Exclusive Company’s founder and current president, Mr. G., got his entrepreneurial start in the early ‘50s by selling records out of the trunk of his car and at flea markets. A few short years later, Mr. G. opened the first Exclusive Company location on Main Street in West Bend, WI.

The Exclusive Company currently has 5 locations throughout Wisconsin; in Green Bay, Greenfield, Oshkosh, and on Milwaukee’s East Side. All of our stores carry new and pre-owned music and movies along with audio equipment, record accessories, books, t-shirts, incense and more! The West Bend location closed April 5, 2022 and has changed ownership. The Janesville location closed April 23, 2022. The Appleton location closed May 7, 2022.
