    Where'd you get this? I'm on their mailing list and didn't get that notification.

    Is this in-store only or will it also be online?

    it's happening trust me! 40% in stores sale items excluded. Come see me in Norwood (analogj) just bought nice collection of mint used lots of white label promos. Very proud to have worked for this company since 94 and shopper since 84. We survived and thrived (3 new stores in last 6 months) because of great customers. A ittle pre-record store day thank you!

    How do we find you in the store? I come there all the time, and will be there tomorrow if this is happening. Was there Friday night March 23 and think I saw some of that collection behind the counter...

    Thanks. Just a quick question. Should I read the above as:

    "40%, in stores sale items excluded" or

    "40% in stores, sale items excluded"?

    I'm not in a position to be in store, but will shop online if available that way.

    I think it's just for in store purchases.

    Might have to see if I can make at trip down to Norwood for this. Since it's 40% off everything, I can bring the little kiddos to peruse their usual doodads and such.

    Any word on what kind of stuff was in the collection? Trying to decide if I want to trek down to Norwood or hit the Salem/Nashua stores.

    Is this definitely going on? Might head over to Providence place, if it's confirmed.

    Hi zwolo, met you at the checkout counter in the Norwood store. I was the guy with the two Jimmy Smith albums, hope to see you around the forum.

    I went to the Norwood store. I got there about 10:30am. Their entire parking lot was packed.

    I got lots of great stuff, including a strong VG++ UK Decca 1st Rolling Stones mono LP for $26.

    If anyone is interested, there is/was, as of a couple hours ago, a used 2LP MoFi pressing of Patricia Barber's album, Smash. It was selling for $30 before the discount. It's a great album. After the discount it's $18. The cheapest copy currently on Discogs is $43. The LP is quite a bit better than the CD.

    They have a good number of new AP 45s (including the wonderful Sam Cooke Night Shift). Their retail at NC is $5 higher at $60, but with the discount, we're talking $36. A great deal.

    Lots of great used as well as new stuff.

    I think I saved a lot of money by not being anywhere near a Newbury store...

    The closest Newbury's is 1000s of miles away from me, basically on the other side of the country. So the fact that I was "nowhere near" one was not by choice.

    Believe me, if I had access to one I'd have been in a Newbury store today, blowing $$!
