Black Friday 2021 with Dusty Groove!
We're running Black Friday similarly to Record Store Day -- with items made available on a first-come, first-serve basis on that day. As with earlier in the year, we'll still be operating with some concerns for Covid safety.
Because of the crowds, we will continue to maintain social distancing in the line. Also, as per current Chicago regulations, ALL customers most be masked for in store ordering and shopping. The crowds in the store will make distancing difficult so we ask this for everyone's safety. We may also limit the amount of customers in the store at any given time.
We will open at 7am and will be operating with the following guidelines for ordering Black Friday titles only:
All transactions for Black Friday titles will take place at the front of the Dusty Groove store. We will not be open for regular shopping until 10am.
All Black Friday items will be selected on a form. We will pull items on your behalf, in the usual first-come, first-served, one copy per customer standard of RSD Black Friday.
Order Form for the November 26, Black Friday drop. Print the list in advance, fill it out at home, which will really speed things up. The form still must be presented in person, the morning of Friday, November 26, starting at 7am.
On Saturday, November 27, 7:00am Chicago time, Black Friday items left will go up for sale online. At that time orders can be placed online and picked up in the usual manner for local pickup orders.
As with other recent Record Store Day-related events, we're operating under both the guidelines that the organization provides for us, and in coherence with local Chicago regulations during the pandemic.
This year we'll have plenty of amazing titles from:
