RSD &  CORONAVIRUS
LOCAL LOCKDOWN IN FLINTSHIRE
From 1st October Flintshire will be under restrictions limiting movement , we are waiting to see how long this lasts and any impact it may have on the next RSD Drop.
The plan at the moment is to do the 3rd RSD Drop as  the first two. This will mean ONLY ONE allowed in to the shop at a time, the use of hand sanitiser on entrance, with gloves for browsing also an option and provided . If you have good idea of what you want this will speed things up for any socially distanced queue waiting outside.
We will also open on the Sunday for anyone not wishing to see whats left and avoiding the queue at these times. The Sunday opening will be strictly appointment only (details to follow) giving you a guarantee of entering the shop at a given time.
After this remaining titles will be absorbed into our stock and will appear on our Website Online Store page.

The focus of these three RSD Drop dates is on supporting those stores that reopen, as well as the artists, labels, distribution and every other business behind the scenes making record stores work.This will be NOT be RSD as we know it, more focus on the exciting releases out on the DROP dates.

Q. What is Record Store Day (RSD)
A. It is the one day of the year when hundreds of independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops host events to mark the occasion. In addition thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar

Tips:
If there is a title(s) you are desperate to pick up on the day we recommend you
get to the shop early to get as near to the front of the queue as possible.

There will be a exclusive FREEBIES for the first few customers.

Remember that all RSD titles are extremely limited and although we will do our very best to get multiples of any we have in for the day it is not always possible due to incredible demand from Record Stores across the Globe.

Good idea to write down what you are after and list a few other options just in case.

We will list anything that is arriving for the day on our RSD page, so be sure to check this before joining the queue.

Confirmations are listed in the run up to RSD with a price list viewable the night before the day. We always aim to sell as cheap as we  possibly can. A physical price list will be also available on the day and its generally handed down the queue to browse before getting to the counter. Those with Smart Phones or Tablets can check our Website RSD page online.

Wear suitable clothing if joining the queue early as it can be abit nippy early in the day and open to the elements. Should it rain,  we can put our Shop canopy up if required and there is some cover under nearby shop overhang which very handy - where the queue lines up....hopefully though this wont be necessary.

BLACK FRIDAY 2020

 November tba ......shop open 7am.

*Black Friday is the perfect excuse to celebrate both the releases themselves and the unique indie record stores who carry them. Cheap, mass produced frenzy is definately not the goal. Not all UK Record shops participate in this event BUT WE DO.

Q: When is  Black Friday?
A: Always the day after Thanksgiving

Q: What will be available on the day?
A: Selection of titles that are extremely limited as this is a U.S.A. event, small amounts make it to the UK,Europe and beyond.

A: We will list all incoming titles on our Website RSD page.

Q: How much will they cost?
A: Prices will be displayed next to titles , so check ahead of the day.

A: We will be open at 7am to facilitate people on their way to work or returning from night shift.

Q: What time does VOD Music Record shop close on Black Friday?A: We will close at our usual late opening 6pm for Fridays to allow the opportunity to those who couldnt make it in the morning.

Q: How many can i purchase?
A: As titles are even more limited than RSD and fewer releases it will be 1 of each title up to a maximum of 5 titles.But it is OK to rejoin any queue if you need more than 5.

Q: Can i Pre order? A: No items can be reserved, purely on a first come first served basis.

Note, whilst this is not RSD, with Black Friday titles so limited if you are desperate to pick up something of the list it is a good idea to get to the shop ahead of opening time

Once priced take that as confirmation they will be at our shop on Black Friday but most likely just ONE or TWO of each with the odd exception due to very limited UK numbers of each title....

2020 BLACK FRIDAY TITLES...maybe additions before the day

ONCE PRICED...WE WILL HAVE IT.
Note almost are just one or two of each due to limited amount arriving to the UK.


* Finally, its November so 7am starts can be on the chilly side so make sure warm clothing is too hand.
