Admittedly your basic independent record store has not given me much besides some free posters, a copy of the local independent weekly, a promo cassette or compact disc, a paycheck for a short time and recently some concert tickets. However, they do need the business and I willing to give my money to them to allow them to stay in business so I can continue to shop there.
But wouldn't it be nice to win a trip for 2 to New York City?
The people behind Record Store Day are hosting a contest to send two people to NYC all expenses paid (airline tickets, hotel) and a $200 American Express gift card! Now that's a nice idea!
There's no purchase necessary, but your local independent record store would appreciate it greatly if you stopped by and give them some business. (Hint. Hint.)
