View the whole list of RSD offerings here:
We have just about everything on the list, and good quantities of the ones people asked about, like Space Jam, Bowie Promo Box, Grateful Dead, Stevie Nicks, U2, Gerard Way, Prince singles, Marcy Playground, Neil Young, RTJ totes, Alice in Chains, DMB, Bruce Springsteen, AND SO MUCH MORE.
We alphabetize and organize the RSD selection to make your experience as stress-free as possible! Please look at our Facebook page Friday night to see photos of the store and the layout. Our Facebook event page is HERE.
COUPONS: There are always items that are too expensive/heavy/scarce to put in the bins, like the Dave Matthews Band box set and the Star Wars Crosley record player, so we have devised a coupon system that works really great. At 7:30 am, Amy will go through the line and offer coupons for the items in the showcase. If you get one, put it somewhere safe, and shop the bins confident you are getting the item on your coupon. When you get to the cash register, present your coupon. Simple as that! The list of coupon items will be listed on FB the night before.
We will be running a 25% OFF SALE on used records.
RSD SWAG BAGS will be given out until they run out (200 in total!) This year's swag bags have 200 free admission passes for the Columbus Museum of Art, 200 free admission passes to the Gateway Film Center via CD102.5, $1 off coupon for Roosevelt Coffee and more, like stickers, buttons, and music samplers. So the first 200 shoppers will get a really nice swag bag/canvas tote!
PROMOWEST PRODUCTIONS will be giving away free tickets from 7am - 9am for Bunbury, Foster The People, My Morning Jacket, Brit Floyd, The Black Angels and Everclear.
PORT-A-JOHNS: Yes, let's be real. Some of you will choose to get there early and will be drinking coffee, so it's good to know, there will be a men's and a women's facility available. Drink up!
PARKING: Street parking is still the cheapest around our store, at 20 minutes per $.25, with meters turning on at 8 am. However, the lot directly behind us will be reduced to $3 to park from 12:01 am to noon on Saturday, April 22 for RSD. After noon, it goes back to $7 per day.
We will have two registers going again and lots of helpers. Shoppers are strongly encouraged to PLEASE PAY WITH CASH, which helps everyone get through the line faster. Please present your ID if you pay with credit card.
Check Facebook the night before RSD; we usually post pictures of the layout of exclusive records so you can get your bearings!
Thanks for supporting your downtown Columbus record store!!!!!!
