Guestroom Records is a series of locally-owned record stores in Oklahoma City and Norman.
Owners Justin Sowers and Travis Searle met while living in the University of Oklahoma dorms and worked on a business plan while delivering pizzas for Pizza Shuttle in Norman.
For eighteen months prior to its opening, Sowers and Searle ran a small distribution / door-to-door record shop, collecting names and phone numbers and delivering monthly orders to the homes of customers.
Guestroom opened their first store in July 2003 in downtown Norman. When the shop was ready to open, they put their entire personal music collections (Sowers had about 1200 LPs and 400 CDs and Searle had about 1500 CDs and 400 LPs) into the shop to bolster their used stock.
In 2005, Guestroom moved from its original location (119 N. Crawford) to 125 E. Main Street in Norman. Two years later, in May 2007, Guestroom opened its first Oklahoma City location at 3701 N. Western Avenue. Guestroom opened its third location in the Oklahoma Hardware Building in Bricktown in November 2011.
