This Black Friday (Friday, November 26th) Stinkweeds will be hosting an event featuring Record Store Day Exclusive titles! If you’ve joined us for past Record Store Day or Black Friday RSD events please note that there will be some changes in how we’re operating. These will be different from the last RSD events where we were taking orders by phone and online. Please read on for all the info and some FAQs.
Stinkweeds will be opening at 8AM on Friday 11/26 for sales of Black Friday RSD Exclusives IN OUR PARKING LOT! This will be an outdoor event, with a limit to the number of customers looking at Black Friday titles at a time to encourage social distancing. Masks are recommended and will be available to anyone who needs one. We will have multiple registers and plan on moving as fast as we can to make sure the line moves quickly! Thank you for your cooperation as we find the safest way to host this event for you. Go to recordstoreday.com for a complete list of titles available on Friday 11/26. We will not be able to facilitate any phone orders for Black Friday releases. No holds. No Pre-Orders. Only one copy of each title per customer is allowed. All purchases must be made in person on Friday.
What is Record Store Day?:
In short, Record Store Day is an annual event where bands and labels release exclusive items (Mostly Vinyl, but also, sometimes CDs and Cassettes) released only on THAT DAY! Most of these titles will not be set for re-release beyond Record Store Day, so you got to get ’em while they’re HOT!

Why can’t I preorder or hold RSD Exclusives?:
The idea behind all RSD events is to get locals out to their favorite local record stores. Holding items or allowing pre-orders opens it up for out of town’rs getting all that good stuff that you want! This stuff is in high demand and keeping exclusive to local customers gives you a better chance of getting what you want!
Are you getting the thing that I want and how many are you going to have?:
We only know how many of each item we’ll have when we receive it. Basically, all the stores put in their orders and they are given quantities based on those orders but not always the quantities that are ordered. We always do really well and get most of what we’ve ordered. But, if you want an exact number give us a call in the days leading up to Black Friday and we’d be happy to let you know how many we’ll have.
We really appreciate everyone’s patience as we’ve navigated the complications of running a small shop during a pandemic. We’re really excited to make these RSD titles available for in-store purchases, for the first time in almost two years! Your health, comfort and safety has been a major priority for us throughout all of this. We feel confident that this outdoor event will be a safe and fun step forward!
(Outdoor RSD Sales start at 8am. Stinkweeds will open for regular in-store shopping at 11am.)
See you on Black Friday!
