Black Friday 2014

rsdlogo

 

The Holiday Season is almost upon us.  Black Friday (Nov 28) brings the indie record store a slew of exclusive releases.

First, there are no pre-orders or advance holds on any Black Friday release.

As always, we like to reward those who get here earliest and are most excited for the special releases without making the whole occasion about who camps out the longest.

We will be conducting our random drawing for high demand/limited titles at 9:30 am.

We will open at 10am with the first person in line being the first person to enter the store to shop the Black Friday titles.

What is the drawing & how does it work?

Everyone in line before 9:30 A.M. will be given the opportunity to fill out their Black Friday wishlist.  Basically, everyone requests the titles they want to purchase if they have the opportunity.  We will collect all the filled out wishlists at 9:30 A.M. sharp.  The filled out wishlists will be selected in random order and each person will be reserved the top 2 items on their wishlist, if the titles are still available.  These 2 items will be held in reserve behind the counter and cannot be purchased by anyone else even if they are further up in line.

So when should you show up?

If you want multiple titles,  it will be “first come, first serve” after the wishlist drawing is finished.  So getting here early will allow you the chance to be one of the first people to attack the Black Friday titles.

If you are just looking to get 1 or 2 titles, the key time is 9:30 A.M.  which is the deadline to submit a filled out a wishlist. Everyone who submits a wishlist has an equal opportunity to reserve that one exclusive title they desire.

Hope to see you on Friday
