The Hamilton Record Exchange (previously Paradise Records) was located at Shop 11, King's Arcade, inside King's Buildings, which was a shopping arcade linking Victoria Street with the former-McDonalds carpark off Alma Street (the McDonalds is now the site of TSB, while the arcade is now taken up mostly by Timezone). Open since at least the early 1980s, the Hamilton Record Exchange was run by Mike McCarthy, and closed in the late 1990s.

The Hamilton Record Exchange sold mainly vinyl and tapes, though there were small stocks of CDs in the later years.
