Record Store Day Drop #3 is Saturday, October 24
Record Store Day Drop #3
This year there are three Record Store Day Drops, each with a different selection of limited edition releases available only at indie record stores. The third and final drop is on Saturday, October 24th and we are excited to have Amoeba San Francisco and Amoeba Berkeley open again! Amoeba Hollywood remains closed.
For this drop on October 24, Amoeba SF will open at 9am, Amoeba Berkeley will open at 10am, and Amoeba.com will start selling RSD titles at 10am PT. We won't be able to carry every title on the lists this year due to the extremely limited nature of the releases. As always with these limited edition titles, there are no pre-orders or holds allowed and there is a limit of 1 copy per title per person.
To ensure Amoeba.com can handle a large influx of traffic on this Drop, we are planning to implement a virtual waiting room. You will be placed in line for Record Store Day titles and when it is your turn, you will have 10 minutes to complete your order. If your shopping time exceeds 10 minutes, you will be returned to the waiting room to wait in line again.
Please note: Due to local government restrictions currently in place to help limit the spread of COVID-19, we are temporarily unable to ship international orders.
Amoeba San Francisco & Amoeba Berkeley RSD Details:
On 10/24, Amoeba San Francisco is open 9am - 7pm and Amoeba Berkeley is open 10am - 7pm. Both stores will use a menu system for RSD titles, rather than putting them on the floor as in years past. Customers who want RSD titles will line up outside in the morning, wearing a face covering and maintaining 6 feet of social distance from one another, and fill out their menus. If you don't want the limited edition Record Store Day titles, you are welcome to come in the store and shop normally.
Amoeba staffers will collect the menus in order and give customers a clip to retrieve their bag. It is very important that you hang on to this clip as it is how you will pick up your RSD items.
We will fill each customer's request for RSD items in order to ensure that the items are being sold fairly according to their place in line. Once the bags are filled, they will be waiting for the customer at the registers. Hand the cashier your clip to claim your bag and the cashier will do the rest. You can go over your menu, compare it to what's in the bag, and put back any items you may not want at that time.
