Enjoy Black Friday/RSD here, at Pure Pop on November 25!
What goes on Black Friday/RSD at Pure Pop?
First, there are many exclusive/limited releases, for more info you can check out recordstoreday.com
Also, there will be a Black Friday sale on all used items in the store.
15% off all Used Vinyl/CDS/Tapes & DVDs.
So how do I get my hands on my favorite RSD release?
Well, there will be a line. Below is a general explanation of how the day will work.
Pure Pop opens at 10am on Friday the 25th. We will be collecting wish lists at 9am sharp – make sure to get yours in by then! If there are only a couple of releases you really want, we DO NOT recommend trying to be the first in line – it won’t make a difference if you fill out a wish list. As long as you’re here no later than 8:55am with your wishlist, you have just as much a chance as anyone else to get the one or two releases that you want. If you want 7 things really, really badly, then we suggest getting to Pure Pop early so you can be the first in line to get in. There is usually already a small line around 7:30am or so. Besides the two items on your wishlist, everything else is first come, first serve. WE DO NOT DO PRE-ORDERS OR HOLDS PRIOR TO RSD/Black Friday. This is just general nationwide RSD policy.
So, what’s a wish list? In order for us to try to get you the release you want, we have a “wish list” – you fill out up to 8 releases that you want in order of how much you want them (1 being: you’d kill to get it, 8 being: you wouldn’t be torn up if you missed it). We collect the wish lists at 9am sharp and shuffle them. Starting from the random wish list on the top of the pile, we pick out the top 2 items you wrote down that are available and hold it for you, so you’re guaranteed to get at least something on your list. BUT we cannot guarantee everyone will get their #1 and #2 choices. We have a very limited supply of RSD/Black Friday releases! As we go through the lists and things sell out, we move on to the #3, #4, #5 choices and so on.
Here’s an example of how the wish list works: Say we get 10 copies of the Jerry Garcia vinyl. Johnny’s wish list is 20th in the pile of randomly shuffled lists and the Jerry Garcia vinyl is at the top of his list. Before we get to Johnny’s list however, ten other people had the Jerry Garcia on their top 2 and we put them aside for those lucky people, so we are now sold out of the Jerry Garcia. Sorry Johnny, but we’ll have to move on to your number 2 and 3 on the list instead. Even though Johnny didn’t get his number 1 pick, at least he got his 2nd and 3rd! and since it was really up to pure chance, he’s not too bummed and didn’t waste time by lining up outside the store at 5am.
