Come down for Record Store Day/Black Friday at Pure Pop on Friday Nov. 24

What is Record Store Day/Black Friday at Pure Pop?

First, there are many exclusive/limited releases(mostly vinyl) that will be available for the first time.  You can check out list of this year’s titles at

Second, we have a storewide sale. (see below for more details)

So how do I get my hands on my favorite Record Store Day release?

Hopefully, you can be at Pure Pop on Record Store Day/Black Friday.

There will be a line of people in the morning waiting to get their hands on the most desired RSD titles.

Below is a general explanation of how the day will work.

Pure Pop opens at 10am on RSD

But the more important time is the 9am deadline to be part of the Wish List Drawing.

So, what’s a wish list? In order for us to try to get you the release you want, we have a “wish list” – you fill out up to 9 releases that you want in order of how much you want them (1 being: you’d kill to get it, 9 being: you wouldn’t be torn up if you missed it). We collect the wish lists at 9am sharp and shuffle them. Starting from the random wish list on the top of the pile, we pick out the top 2 items you wrote down that are available and hold it for you, so you’re guaranteed to get at least something on your list. BUT we cannot guarantee everyone will get their #1 and #2 choices. We have a very limited supply of RSD releases! As we go through the lists and things sell out, we move on to the #3, #4, #5 choices and so on.

We will be collecting wishlists at 9am sharp – make sure to get yours in by then! If there are only a couple of releases you really want, we DO NOT recommend trying to be the first in line – As long as you’re here no later than 8:55am with your wishlist, you have just as much a chance as anyone else to get the one or two releases that you want. If you want 20 things really, really badly, then we suggest getting to Pure Pop early so you can be the first in line to get in. There is usually already a small line around 7am or so. Besides the two items on your wishlist, everything else is first come, first serve. WE DO NOT DO PRE-ORDERS OR HOLDS PRIOR TO RSD. This is just general nationwide RSD policy.

Here’s an example of how the wish list works: Say we get 10 copies of the Jerry Garcia vinyl . Johnny’s wish list is 25th in the pile of randomly shuffled lists and the Jerry Garcia is at the top of his list. Before we get to Johnny’s list however, ten other people had the Jerry Garcia on their top 2 and we put them aside for those lucky people, so we are now sold out of the Jerry Garcia. Sorry Johnny, but we’ll have to move on to your number 2 and 3 on the list instead. Even though Johnny didn’t get his number 1 pick, at least he got his 2nd and 3rd! and since it was really up to pure chance, he’s not too bummed and didn’t waste time by lining up outside the store at 5am.

Wondering if we will receive your desired release?  We should receive at least 1 copy of 90% of the titles being released for Record Store Day. We will have more info on quantities and prices as this week goes on.

Pure Pop tries to get as many titles as possible, but we cannot guarantee any title will be here until it arrives.  Check out our website for prices/quantities/cancellations  as we get closer to Record Store Day/Black Friday. Have any more questions? Give us a call at 802-658-2652.

PLEASE NOTE: We can’t sell any Record Store Day title online or by phone until 8am on Saturday, the 25th as per national RSD rules.
