ON SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 2008, HUNDREDS OF INDEPENDENTLY-OWNED MUSIC STORES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WILL CELEBRATE “RECORD STORE DAY.”
On this day, all of these stores will simultaneously link and act as one with the purpose of celebrating the culture and unique place that they occupy both in their local communities and nationally.
Plans are underway to set up special events at all of the stores on this day, as well as provide customers with a goodie bag that promotes new formats, new releases, and exciting information on music, theatrical, and gaming releases. Working with our partners, the indies will also link to run extensive marketing campaigns both on a national level and a local level.
Music, theatrical, and gaming companies who wish to participate are encouraged to begin thinking of how they would like to work with us on their projects. This can include anything from samplers for the goodie bag, a special enter-to-win promotional offer, partnerships on marketing campaigns, a special one-day sale campaign, in-store appearances, fun events, and information/samples of new formats.
