I’m sure many people reading this have visited the shop for Record Store Day in previous years, but there will also be some that haven’t. So here is all the information that you need to know…
Record Store Day rules are the same every year; you cannot pre-order or reserve stock and all sales are over the counter only. On the day we can’t take phone or online orders. All stock is sold on a first come first served basis and customers cannot buy more than one copy of any individual Record Store Day release. There are no strict restrictions on the numbers of different items that can be purchased.
We will be opening at 8:30am on Saturday 13th April, one hour earlier than normal. There is usually a queue outside the shop on Record Store Day, so please be prepared to wait to be served. We would also advise having some warm clothing on if you arrive early. It can be pretty cold at that time of day!
As in previous years we will be giving the first 50 people in the queue the option of reserving a first choice item from the Record Store Day list. This will be saved for when you get to the counter where further purchases can then be made.
Once again we have made printable tick sheets available. Please either use one of these or have a list with you of the releases you would like to purchase. All Record Store Day stock is behind the ground floor counter. All you need to do is tell the staff behind the counter which releases you want and they will do the rest.
We look forward to seeing some of you on the day. Lots of stock has been ordered so hopefully most people will be able to get the releases they want.
If there is any stock left over this will be made available to purchase on our website one week later (Saturday 20th April 00:01am).
We have listed all the titles that may become available online at 1 minute past midnight on Saturday 20th April, but this of course depends on what sells in the shop during the previous week. If there’s a particular release you are interested in please enter your email address on the relevant listing page and you will receive an alert if we have any stock to sell online
