MEDIA RELEASE :  In past year’s, independent record stores around the globe have celebrated the art of music and the stores that sell it with an Annual Record Store Day in April. This year it will still be celebrated but in a different way and not just on one day. Instead there are going to be three Record Store Day Drops scheduled for Saturday August 29th, Saturday September 26th and Saturday October 24th. The reason for three ‘Drop’ dates is to hopefully draw in smaller crowds for each day. They will not be the big events and parties of the previous years, but there will still be the 100’s of exclusive limited edition mostly vinyl records available split up over the three RSD Drop dates.

It will also not be the free-for-all rush to get in the door when Cheeky Monkey first opens.  Instead they will be taking a cue from all the other busy retail stores and letting a limited number of customers in at one time. As one customer leaves, another will be admitted keeping a steady flow coming and going. Like all the other stores, it is wise to remember your social distancing both while waiting outside and once inside the store. Masks are not required but are recommended (unless guidelines change).

It is also asked that people shop alone, not in couples or with their families along, that no food, drinks, bags or backpacks be brought inside. A table at the front door will have hand sanitizer for everyone to use when they enter. In the spirit of fairness, shoppers will be limited to five RSD Drop exclusives on each date with only one copy of each title.

To help avoid being in a line outside in August when the temperatures could be high, Cheeky Monkey will open earlier in the day. Hours for the August 29th RSD Drop will be 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

For any last minute changes they may need to make in accordance with government regulations, please check www.cheekymonkeysarnia.ca blog section.
