Get Ready For Record Store Day releases!

 Here is our plan for Saturday July 17 special release event: Records Store Day Drop #2! 


 

·      Fill out your wish list - printable list at www.recordstoreday.com  rank your most desirable albums – and we will collect your list (starting at the front of the line and filling them in order) and do our best to fill the first 10 most-desired on your list that we have in stock.  To prevent a single customer from hoarding--say all the copies of the John Prine title--we are only allowing ONE copy per RSD title per person on Saturday.

·      On your list you can pick & rank MORE than 10 titles, so if the first three things you want, for example, are already sold out, we can go down your list and fill up to 10 items total.

·      PLEASE REMEMBER THESE ARE LIMITED EDITIONS.  We don’t get everything we ordered, we don’t order everything, and we often don’t get the quantities we ordered. 

We cannot set aside product for you by phone for RSD product until after RSD. 

·      Please be patient…we still have a reduced staff !  and THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

SEATTLE STORE CLOSING BY JUNE

It's true: Everyday Music has closed its Seattle store in the Capitol Hill area. The store, which opened in 2003 when Everyday Music purchased the Cellophane Square stores from Djangos.com, had been moved four times, expanded and contracted, seen a number of great employees come and go and, hopefully, gave many customers much happiness and comfort. 

To say that this past year has been challenging would be stating the obvious, and while it contributed to the decision to close, it was really just a decision I made to scale back my workload and responsibilities. I purchased the Washington stores shortly after I was diagnosed and treated for Stage 4 cancer and while twenty years later it appears I have beaten back the cancer, the affects the treatment left behind have taken a toll on my overall health, and now in my sixties and forty-five years in record retail it’s time to cut back. To put it in perspective, when I purchased the company van in 2002, it had 60,000 miles on the odometer and today it has pushed past 185,000 miles — over 90% of those traveled on Interstate 5 between Portland and Bellingham.

The Bellingham store and the two Portland stores will remain open, but we have already consolidated the Downtown Portland store and our NE Portland store building is for sale, and so that too will be forced to close sometime in the future; tough times for record stores. 

So, that’s the news. I want to thank all of our customers; past, present and future. It’s been well worth it serving the Seattle area. And who knows what the future will be. Perhaps the compact disc will make a resurgence and I’ll have to re-open so I can sell the millions (yes, millions) of used CDs we’ve amassed. That would certainly put me into a grave.

Thanks, again.
