Mission Statement

At Jupiter Records and Tapes we aim to create a space that is accessible to anyone and everyone. We strive to be a beacon of creativity, expression, and culture. This is a safe space and no suppression of one’s individuality shall ever be permitted.

In encouraging one’s self expression, we offer a public, and absolutely free, DJ booth. This is a permanent fixture in our store and is available anytime during business hours. Simply write your name on the chalkboard with no prior experience necessary. Not only is spinning records fun and engaging, it is a practical means of therapy and escape from a world that does not always offer support and encouragement for those interested in artistic expression.

In addition to providing our city with a safe and inviting space, we offer tens of thousands of records, CD’s, and tapes at an affordable cost in attempts at excluding no one from access to wonderful music of all forms. This is a place that satisfies collectors of all experiences and tastes. We stock a massive amount of music that ranges from classic titles to works that defy classification.

At Jupiter Records and Tapes we are constantly evolving and progressing in our efforts to provide beautiful San Diego with a unique environment that is welcoming to absolutely anyone. We will maintain our promise of encouragement with a positive attitude that makes a visit to our store as enjoyable, interesting, and comfortable as possible. Through our doors there is something for everyone.

We hope to see you soon!
