…..news letter #722 – Eve…..

Well, if you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping by now, I’d say you are pretty much screwed. But given the last couple of weeks around the shop, I think everyone is going to have a rather merry morning tomorrow. This is our last list of the year so I’ll keep it short. Obviously no new arrivals, instead we’re going to share our favourite releases of the year. I also want to thank everyone who reads these lists and comes to the shop and still BUYS music in a brick and mortar store. It still blows my mind that I’m able to unlock the door and sit behind that counter every day selling records to such great customers and call that my job. Happy Holidays to all of you and your family!

Our hours over the holidays will be….

Thursday Dec 24 11 – 4
Friday Dec 25 closed
Saturday Dec 26 11 – 5
Thursday Dec 31 11 – 4
