Tree Hill Record Shop was owned by Max and located in Tree Hill that was often busy and visited by many of Tree Hill's music loving residents. Chris Keller was employed by Max and worked alongside him whilst waiting for his musical career to take off. One of the shop's most frequent visitors was Peyton Sawyer. She had a great love for music and her and Max formed a close friendship around their mutual interests. Unfortunately, Max had to close down the record store due to lack of interest in record buying and everyone now downloading music.
