Benefits of Record Day Store.

The celebration of Record Store Day was held last Saturday and saw huge crowds grace the occasion. As the celebrations went on, there was a lot of excitement from all over the world. A number of the vinyl collection forums were buzzing with the hype due to the RSD exclusives since they were eyeing them. Before the time was due, my local shops did post pictures of their shipments. Seeing people lined up for the collection before the time is a fascinating experience. Despite the fact that Record store was designed to celebrate the independent record stores, this has grown beyond this to something much bigger than what was expected. For the major labels to release the overhyped limited pressing, this was a perfect day for them. It is important to note that the shops will have little say when it comes to the pressings you can get.

Some years back, if you talked with some of the owners of these shops, you would be surprised to notice that they were not allowed to sell the most in demand but they had to purchase some dumbs. One of the most disappointing things that you would face some years back is the loss of cash from major exclusives. Even though we say that these exclusives are good, you should note that they also have their shortcomings. Record stores doors will not be darkened unless it is a Record day store. Upon the arrival of a good record Day Store, you are assured that record stores will boom the internet and ensure that they make the huge profits. As the flippers took over, this changed the Record Day Store into a hectic scenario rather than their celebration. Since the fans were bitter, the inflated demand as well as the limited supply, this led to the hectic event scenario.

Even as the event was in progress, the news were being streamed by the various collection groups. You will be surprised to know that some people in the event ran through the store as they pushed each other and snatched the records from each other’s hands. Cheap is always expensive, it is important that as a local shop owner you get the new records from your neighborhood other than using the internet for low prices. For your local shop to remain on course, it will be crucial that you spend some cash for quality records. One of the things that you should consider advocating for is the availability of the Record Store Day more than once a year to ensure that the independent music stores get the best.
