RECORD STORE DAY 2017 – April 22nd
Hours 10AM – 6PM
We are continuing our tradition of showcasing local music, raising money for the Parkdale Food Centre, a store wide sale on everything in the store (20% off) RSD titles are marked up very little and wont be included in the store wide sale.
A draw for an Edwards Audio turntable package valued at $500.
Every purchase over $20 gets a ticket in the hat, Every donation of $5 to the Parkdale Food Centre gets you a ticket in the hat!
We have ordered a select amount of RSD Titles, early shipments suggest good fill. As usual no holds, 1 copy per title per customer. The cheapest RSD prices in town.
Our DJ for the day is TIMEKODE DJ Alexandre Mattar (Zatar)
Doors open at 10AM, we are trying to place the RSD vinyl throughout the store in a way that will help alleviate bottlenecks and give as many people a chance at finding the titles they want.
Between 10AM and 2PM it is time to shop!!
We’ll be slamming Espressos, Dishing out Donna’s Cookies and of course continuing our tradition of Jo Louis’.
Our bands will start at 2pm.
