“CONSIGNMENT: the act of consigning with the provision that payment is expected only on completed sales and that unsold items may be returned to the one consigning.”
With far more space devoted to local music than other retailer, CHEAPO RECORDS believe in local music. Consignment offers local artists the opportunity to market their music in a dedicated retail environment.
CDs from Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin musicians and distributors.
CD-Rs from Minnesota musicians and distributors only
LPs and Singles from Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin artists and musicians
Movies & videos from Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin artists and musicians – DVD format only.
NO CONSIGNMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT A SIGNED CONTRACT FROM THE PERSON OR ENTITY CONSIGNING THE RESPECTIVE PRODUCT(S).

In-store price: We pay you:
Pricing is very important. If our selling price is too high your products will not sell. We do not recommend a price to our customers higher than $12.99 unless you have significant commercial exposure already. For new musical artists and groups, we recommend a price of $9.99 or less per CD for our customers. For CD-Rs, if they are do-it-yourself (DIY) discs and packaging, we will not price them higher than $4.99 to our customers. If they are professionally duplicated quality discs and inserts, $12.99 will be the maximum price to our customers.
All of our T-shirts are priced at $19.99. We would suggest that local bands retail T-shirts at $15.99.
T-shirts consigned at Cheapo must be related to local bands. We accept 5 T-shirts: 1 Medium, 2 Large and 2 Xtra Large.
