Record Store Day was started in 2007 as a way to celebrate and promote the culture of the record store, and to spread the word about all the independently-owned physical retail stores still alive and well in the United States. Since then, the celebration has spread to stores across the world, and every year we work with more and more stores in the US and abroad. Additionally, Record Store Day organizers are now able to offer US stores the opportunity to participate in special promotions and exclusive releases throughout the year. All indie record stores who meet the criteria are invited to participate by making Record Store Day a celebration day for their store. In-store performances, sales, demonstrations, dances, and everything that makes an indie record store unique should be on display that day. Stores are able to participate at any level they choose.
Once you enter your information below, Record Store Day organizers will go over it to determine that all criteria for a Record Store Day store are met, and may contact you for more information. Please make sure the email address you use to register is one that you check frequently as this will be the address Record Store Day uses to contact you and to send you information on a regular basis about releases, promotions, Black Friday and Record Store Day. Please understand that we have to make sure the stores registered and listed on this site fits our description of a record store. A Record Store Day participating store is defined as a retailer whose main primary business focuses on a full-time physical store location, whose product line consists of at least 50% music retail, whose company is not publicly traded and whose ownership is at least 70% located in the state of operation. NOTE: Record stores are welcome to sign up at any time, but understand that each submission is looked at individually, and in the months of February/March and October/November it can take longer than usual for a store‘s submission to be studied. If we have questions about your store, we‘ll get in touch with you, otherwise please expect a welcome email when your store has gone live on the site.
This website does include information on participating International stores, but this is primarily a US site, and the releases and promotions featured on this site are for US stores.
Attention International Stores: In being careful to correctly place your signups, it will take an extra day or two, before you see your listing under your country and on the map. Your patience is appreciated. SPECIAL NOTE: UK stores should register at http://www.recordstoreday.co.uk.
IMPORTANT: Once you enter your information and hit submit, you will see a page that will show you what your store‘s page on the Record Store Day site will look like. This page is for you to look at, and is your confirmation that your submission has gone through. But it is not live or searchable on the Record Store Day website, and won‘t be until your submission is looked at and accepted, if it meets the criteria.
