Sudbury Living - Spring 2008 - 13

the record man Despite fierce competition from retail chains, online sellers and the rapidly growing digital market, Sudbury music fans can still buy vinyl LPs from Tony Anselmo at Records On Wheels. point that suppliers were phoning and saying, ‘you’re past due 30 days on that invoice’. Theywere the two hardest years of my life.” Anselmo said the ‘boom-bust’ economic cycles that go with living in Sudbury have posed challenges over the years. But never once has he considered closing his doors. “A lot of people just throw their hands up and pack it in when things get rough,” Anselmo said. “Or they may operate with the idea that, ‘well … there’s no business today, so I think I’ll close up and go have a beer.’ I don’t do that.” Records on Wheels is a fixture on the corner of Elm and Durham in downtown Sudbury. “Growth has always been little baby steps. We grew a little bit every time we moved.” Anselmo said that is the key to his longevity – slow, steady growth and reasonable goals. But there are always new challenges. Over recent years, the biggest has been the rise of online music sharing. “Our industry is one that has been in dire straights. Everything that has transpired in our industry…downloading, e-commerce…has affected us. But it hasn’t hurt us as much as those who didn’t have that good solid base of customers. That’s why we’re still around.” Perhaps the biggest reason Records On Wheels carries on is Anselmo’s unwavering product and service philosophies. “We’re a record store. Plain and simple. And if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we will get it for you.” Anselmo has stayed true to his old school roots. In addition to a huge selection of both wide release and hard-to-find CDs, Records on Wheels offers the city’s only real rare vinyl selection. Anselmo’s business plan has always been and will continue to be the same. He carries what people want and can’t find at other record shops. “If you’re interested in music or you’re a serious music buyer, this is where you are going to come.” And through both high times and lean years in Sudbury, that’s exactly what music lovers have continued to do.
