On April 18, independent music stores across the United States and the world, will take part in Record Store Day, a celebration of local music stores that began in 2007, as a way to spread the word about the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores.

For U.S. stores to participate, they need to be a brick and mortar store in the community, who’s product line is 50% retail music, with 70% ownership in the state of the stores operation.

This is a day for the record store owners and staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities.
