SPB: How important is it to set yourself apart from other stores on Record Store Day?
PoS: Most importantly, we work months ahead of the actual date, reaching out to all sorts of labels and distributors so that we can get every title in stock. We open up early at 5am, and make sure to abide by the RSD rules when it comes to no preorders, holds, purchasing multiple copies of coveted titles, and overpricing. Our staff works very hard to keep the records and the incoming crowd organized so that everyone involved has the best experience possible. We are also diligent about posting images of the titles we have available on our social media sites so that customers can keep up to date with what is going on at the shop all day long during Record Store Day.
