> Hegewisch Records & Tapes

Hegewisch Records & Tapes was a mini-empire of independently owned south side & south suburban shops founded as a late 1960s general store in the namesake Hegewisch neighborhood, before branching out and moving the flagship record store to south suburban Calumet City. Other  south suburban locations were in Richton Park and Merrillville, Indiana. Well remembered by 70s and 80s rock fans for a great selection of records & tapes and novelties, the last store standing was the Richton Park, IL shop, which closed for good in the early 2000s.
