Looks like we have a surprise in store for you all today! On this day exactly five years ago (January 10th, 2014), it was the first day open at our original location on South Grand- the grand opening celebration was the very day after that on the 11th. The past few years we have celebrated our store’s birthday with “free record day” and have handed out free records. Today we want to do something to commemorate our store’s five year anniversary – so we are holding a *very* soft open in the store from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. We will continue to hold just the one hour of the store being open for the next week for those of you wanting to come by and take a peek at the new space. We will also of course have a limited selection of vinyl LPs, CDs, and a new line of Dumb Records shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets for sale. For those of you who do not know, our new location is at 418 E Monroe St.
P.S. – we will soon be updating our Black Sheep history page to tell an accurate timeline and series of events leading up to our move to our new downtown home.
P.S.S. – did you know that we have not missed a single day with Dumb Records’s Record Of The Night™ so far this year?!? It’s been a great way of showing some sort of progress on things we are doing with the new space.
P.S.S.S. – if you are not able to make it in the one hour the store is open, we are still selling records and CDs online through discogs.com! Check out our discogs page right here. We will have an online store setup for Dumb Records merchandise set up very soon as well.
