The day after Thanksgiving, more commonly known as Black Friday, is annually the biggest shopping day of the year. While large retailers may feature stunning deals on big-ticket items it is important to remember that local stores also rely on Black Friday sales. Because of the importance of Black Friday shopping the organizers of the yearly event, Record Store Day, have made sure independent record stores have exclusive releases for the day. Likewise, music fans will be able to find some great deals and rare finds at local record stores this Black Friday.
Located in the heart of the Oregon District, Omega Music is always a must-visit on Black Friday. In addition to having a large amount of exclusive Record Store Day Black Friday releases, Omega Music has much more to offer. As part of their Black Friday sales, the store is offing $50 off any Audio-Technica LP120XUSB & LP3 turntables and a sale on gift cards. Furthermore, those who spend more than $100 will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a $100 gift card. Doors open at 8 am on Black Friday, but if you can't make it the store is also running promotions for Small Business Saturday.
Equally important to their weekend's sales, Omega Music is also hosting a coat drive. In order to help meet their goal of collecting 200 new or gently worn coats, they are incentivizing donations. Anyone who donates on Black Friday will get a chance to spin their prize wheel. The coat drive will last weekend and donations will go to Dayton's St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Skeleton Dust Records
Another great downtown record store with Black Friday deals is Skelton Dust Records. Opening at 11 am, Skelton Dust Records will also have exclusive Record Store Day Black Friday releases. In addition to the exclusive releases, there will also be hundreds of clearance items available. And as always, Skelton Dust Records will be well-stocked with new and used items any music fan will love. Therefore be sure to visit them on Black Friday at their 133 E. 3rd St. Dayton, OH location.
Toxic Beauty Records
Located at 220 Xenia Ave, Yellow Springs, OH, Toxic Beauty Records is another great local record store to hit on Black Friday. Just like the other local record stores mentioned, Toxic Beauty Records will also have Record Store Day Record Store exclusives. But what really makes Toxic Beauty Records a must hit Black Friday record store is the giveaways. This year the first 20 people in the door will receive a goodie bag. In addition to the goodie bags, Toxic Beauty Records will also be doing ticket giveaways. Doors open at 10 am Friday, so make sure to get there early if you want to win a goodie bag.
