Record Store Day, the organization, is managed by the Department of Record Stores and is organized in partnership with the Alliance of Independent Media Stores (AIMS), the Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) and promotes independent record stores year-round with events, special releases and other fun things.
Created at a gathering of record stores in 2007, the first Record Store Day in 2008 was a happy statement to the world that real live brick and mortar record stores were all over the place, thriving and surviving — serving a unique purpose in their communities. Since then, more than 1,000 stores in the United States and even more across the world have joined the party.
Every year, physical stores open or expand, and sales of physical media continue to increase. In addition to its namesake event in April, Record Store Day now works with stores throughout the year on promotions and special events and organizes Record Store Day Black Friday to emphasize record stores’ important place in the biggest shopping day of the year in the USA.
