popularity of Record Store Day can
be attributed to the strengthening of the independent
record store business and actually seeing new stores

What makes Record Store Day so
The excitement factor that drives
people into our stores for these releases is bigger than
Christmas, and hopefully once they are in one of our stores
they dig what we do and decide to come back on a regular basis.
What makes your store special?
Independent Records does RSD scavenger style – not that we hide
product or anything, we just spread all 400+ releases
throughout the store in a way that customers have to really
search out whatever they’re looking for.
What’s your favorite Record Store Day exclusive
I love the Side By Side series from WMG! The
Cure/Dinosaur Jr & Misfits/Lemonheads and I could go
on and on…
