Record Store Day 2018 set to be a hit Saturday

Record Store Day 2018 set to be a hit Saturday

"We prepare those releases to people can know what's for sale today and put them on their wish list", said Jon Berger, who works on the Record Store Day website. When participating record stores sign up for the day, they sign a pledge not to reveal which records they get until the day of the event.

Record stores may seem like a thing of the past, but Bayliss knows that all things old are new again as the big buyers tend to be in the 20-something age range. You may have to stand in a few lines tomorrow, and elbow through a bunch of hipsters to get what you want, but it should all be worth it in the end.

Back when Record Store Day began, Jon Lambert never imagined the event would be such a hit with collectors.

Grimey's has a long history and reputation as one of the United States' finest independent record stores, and for good reason. Saturday, all $1 records are 25 cents and $5 records are $2.50.

Corner Record Shop in Grandville joined in the celebration with live music in the store all day.

In the past, the store only has released about 50 to 60 exclusive records.

And there will be tons of special in-store events.
