Take a look at the list and let us know your wish lists!! Email us, message us, talk to us in the shop.
We need to start ordering the vinyl VERY soon!! Prices will go up ASAP once suppliers have told us their pricing.
Record Store Day 2021 is scheduled over two dates - 12th June and 17th July.
This is Grind and Grooves 3RD YEAR of Record Store Days. We are very excited to be part of this day.
Record Store Day you say....what is that? Well - the official record store website quotes:
"Records Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion"
For us Its a great day when many vinyl enthusiasts come together to celebrate this fantastic music format. There is a fantastic community feel on the day and it is a pleasure to be a part of this.
There are a few things to note about this day:-
- We can take your wish list and order according to this, but we cannot reserve stock as per the RSD rules.
- We will be operating a socially distant queue, if the queue gets too long we may ask people to come back later and give you a time slot (we will take your wish list at that point).
- Face masks to be worn inside please and hand gel applied upon entry. You should only be in the store for a few minutes as you will be handed your purchase. Please know what you want to buy from us before you come.
- If you want to browse you can but gloves may be offered.
- Last year everyone went away with something they wanted :)
- Our queue last year started at 6 - which is quite late in the grand scheme of things - so you have a great chance of getting in and out pretty quick.
- Doors are only allowed to open at 8 - pack your thermals.
- We do not expect to order every single title. There are over 500.
- Price list will be issued a few days before the event - we try price match with other local stores. There are not massive mark ups to be made by us - prices given to us by the record labels sometimes mean prices seem a bit higher than they should be.
Email us, pop in to see us, comment on our facebook posts and let us know what you would like on that day. It would help if you would only comment if you are expecting to come!
