Record Store Day 2012 - Only For Physical Stores

Record Store Day 2012 is held on Saturday 21st April which is in aid of supporting independent record stores.

Koothoomi Records however are not allowed to participate as we do not have a physical store. The reason we do not have a physical store is simply because we cannot afford the overheads which come with running a store, such as rent, electricity and the many other bills.

So we are in a catch 22 situation, if we had run a physical store we would have gone out of business a long time ago, but been able to stock Record Store Day releases, but as we are only online and still in business we cannot stock Record Store Day releases.

I shall leave it on that note and say Record Store Day is a great idea and we fully support it, but come the 21st April please do remember to support your local record store whether that be a physical or online store.
