Black Friday Update!!

Black Friday releases can all be purcahsed from here: Black Friday

Sooooooo. We have been mulling it over this last week and with Covid numbers just getting worse and worse (and it wont get better with Turkey Day tomorrow) we have decided that we are going to do Black Friday completely online this Friday. We dont feel good about people lining up in front of the shop and also have to consider the health of our employees (all two of them!). So please read the fine print below before you head to the list of records.

We will be posting all of available releases this Friday 11/27 at 10:00am. It is a first come first served scenario so dont snooze as stuff will probably go quick. There will be a link on the website that will take you to all the releases and you can gobble them all up and do a quick and easy checkout from the site. You can choose to have them delivered, curbside pickup or have us throw them in the mail. Delivery fees are $3.00. We will only be selling Black Friday releases to local folks (pretty much within 10 or so miles of the shop) on Friday. We will cancel any orders that do not honor this. Any left over releases will be available to anyone for purchase the next day. 

We apologize that we have to do it this way, it is not ideal and also not fun for us as we love to see everyone. We are optimistic things will turn around in 2021 and hope the next RSD and Black Fridays will be "back to normal". 

So, on with the list!!!
