There maybe more additions before the day so keep checking.

*If unable to make it to shop on the day we will take text messages to 07904688739 and advise ASAP  if titles requested are still in stock.

List of whats expected below....

*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.

Q: How will i know what will arrive?
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 once they have arrived so check ahead of the day.

Q: What time does VOD Music Record shop open on Black Friday?
A: We will be open at 8am 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....

2021 BLACK FRIDAY TITLES...maybe additions before the day

Note almost are just one or two of each due to limited amount arriving to the UK.

* Finally, its November so 8am starts can be on the chilly side so make sure warm clothing is too hand.
