RSD - Guide,Tips and Titles

BLACK FRIDAY  - NOVEMBER 24th  2017

First come first served...shop open 7.30am-2pm
Special releases launched on this day to Celebrate Black Friday. Limited editions, mostly imports.Black Friday originates from USA and is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day (the fourth Thursday of November),often regarded in the States as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.A selection of Record Stores across the UK will be participating (including us). We will just be stocking a small selection on the day and anything incoming will be listed here.

OFFICIAL GUIDLINES FROM U.S. ORGANISERS.
RSD and Black Friday are different but the releases are made for the same purpose ie to be
available exclusively at bricks and mortar stores on a specific day (RSD) or a specific time period (BF).The goal is to drive traffic and promotion to participating Independent stores to be sold on a first come first serve basis on the first day of release.Should any titles be left after Black Friday, Stores who do have an online presence can sell the releases a day after the physical bricks and mortar customers have had the opportunity to visit the stores.

General VOD Music guide for BLACK FRIDAY

•Ony 1 title per person of each release to a maximum of 5 different titles per person .

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.

Remember that all 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 on the Black Friday Imports.

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