Black Friday Record Store Day 2012 / Big Black Weekend Sale / 8th Anniversary Sale

Along with all of the super limited Black Friday Record Store Releases we did get we also have this nifty sale going on. Everything is on sale 15% off. Things in the store over a year (little number on price tag ends in "2") are 25% off. Anything older than that (little number ends in "1" or god forbid an "0") is 50% off!!!!

*Due to the limited nature of the Black Friday Releases and some of their very high costs to us, they are not included in this sale. Sorry. The limited releases are first come, first served and many things we got much less than we ordered, and some stuff isn't here yet so I'm still crossing my fingers. Used turntables are not included in the sale either because many of them are on consignment.

Oh yeah, I guess this is sort of our 8th Anniversary too since we opened on the day after Thanksgiving in 2005 (November 25th). So this is our present to you. We enjoy the present of your presence. And vegan treats too if you have them!

8 years ago Lunchbox Records started! It's been a very long, hard ride but has been rewarding the whole way. Of course there are good days and bad days and stressful days and fun days. I never really thought I'd make it this far in the beginning. The plan was just to roll with it and see what happened and if I had to close in a few years then so be it. Luckily thanks to the wonderful people of Charlotte I have not had to close and business has been better every year since we opened. 

I need thank all of the people that helped me along the way: those who for pushed me to do this in the first place, believed in me and put up with the long hours and no time off (in the early years I once worked 189 days straight without a day off). Kelly Keith for being my first employee and understanding when I was still finding my footing. Rob Davis for helping for years, booking shows, working lots of hours for those shows. Michael, Lee, and Brett for putting up with me as things get busier and stressful as we continue to grow. And of course everyone that has ever bought anything from us, whether it was just once or you are a regular. It's very hard running a business, and running a niche-market business with very slim profit margins makes it even harder. Thank you Charlotte for all the love for the last 8 years and we hope to be here for at least 8 more!!!

Anyway, I could write about stuff all day long but have too much work to do in order to get ready for Black Friday. I just wanted to say thanks and actually acknowledge the anniversary on the day it falls for once!

We will open at 9 AM on Friday.

Thanks for a wonderful 8 years - Scott, Michael, & Brett (and sometimes Lee when he's not on tour)
