Support Your Local Independent Record Shops: Black Friday Record Store Day Sales Roundup

Categories: stuff we like
Black Friday Record Store Day
Like it or not, the holiday season is upon us. As we all know, the big kick-off is Black Friday, when everyone shakes off the inevitable Thanksgiving food coma and hits the streets to forage for the best deals on gifts for friends and family.

Rather than heading to the nearest mall to wait in hellish lines in national chain stores, we suggest you support local independent businesses and hit OC's top notch record shops.

We've made it easy for you and listed every shop with Record Store Day deals, their addresses, and their hours for Black Friday. You'll find vinyl exclusives, limited edition merch, and crazy deals on new and used vinyl, CDs, DVDs, and more. Brave the crowd. We promise it'll be worth it.
