…..news letter #768 – 15 years!…..

Well, it may not be Thanksgiving here today, but thanks to the fine folks at Record Store Day central, they’ve turned Black Friday into a mini-RSD event to drive shoppers to small mom & pop shops rather than just the big box stores. And of course they are doing that with a nice stack of exclusive releases, and fortunately pretty much all of them are available to us up here in Canada. Below you will find a list of all the exclusives  (as well as some brand spankin’ new stuff we’re putting out with the RSD stuff) we’ll have on the shelf tomorrow when we open (10 am!).

While that’s exciting and all though, more exciting is that we are celebrating our 15th anniversary! 15 years of slinging wax. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come, from our humble beginnings with a handful of half full bins to the overflowing bins and boxes of records everywhere we are surrounded with today. Thanks to our fine customers we’ve been able to grow in to what we like to think is a pretty darned fine shop with something for everyone. And so to thank you all for another year of support this weekend not only will we have RSD tomorrow, we’ll be having a big ol’ sale all weekend too! THANK YOU!

Listen Gear!
In celebration of our 15th anniversary we’ve got another new design for you to wear around town to show your Listen Love. And since it’s theoretically supposed to be winter, we’ve even made up some hoodies and sweatshirts this go around. As well, we’ve got new cotton totes bags for you to get your records, or groceries, home from the store. Thanks to our buddy Myles for the killer new design. These shirts also make great gifts! Supplies are limited, so get one before we are sold out!
