Moving to Online Sales only – for now…

Folks…

Spinning Discs Sheffield – Moving to Online Sales Only – Update

Thanks to you all for your continued support.

Due to the continuing situation with COVID-19, as of Saturday 21st March 2020 Spinning Discs Sheffield will temporarily close the doors of our physical shop. However our online sales remain open!

If you fancy a record or two get in touch with us through email (contact@spinningdiscssheffield.co.uk), social media (@Spinning_Discs) or phone (07521 450111) and we will try our best to help.

We can post records to your home and if you’re reasonably local we can deliver.

If you’ve pre-ordered a record or two we will honour this and will get in touch closer to the release date to organise a rendezvous!

Our new records are listed on our webshop – spinningdiscssheffield.co.uk/shop

and on our Discogs site – discogs.com/seller/spinning_discs/profile

A selection of our select second hand records are listed on our Record Emporium Discogs site – discogs.com/seller/record_emporium/profile

We’ll be adding to our online stock over the next few weeks to provide a broader range of selections for you to have a virtual crate dig!

As soon as we can we’ll be opening our doors again to all of our lovely customers who we’ve gotten to know (and those who we haven’t just yet!) over the 4 years and 50 weeks since we opened.

We’ll continue to try our very best to support you wherever we can.

Please try and continue to support us and all of the other local independent businesses however and wherever you can.

Please look after yourselves, families, friends, neighbours and each other.

Love,

Spinning Discs Sheffield

Record Store Day 2020 – #RSD20 at Spinning Discs Sheffield

2020 sees the 13th Record Store Day in the UK and the 5th at Spinning Discs Sheffield on Saturday 18th April.

Due to popular demand (we like to listen to you all) we’ll be opening our doors at 8am and closing them at 6pm.  Last year the first person stood in the queue around 3am! So bring a warm jacket and shoes!

On the day itself and the following week we’ll (as ever) sell all of our RSD stock on a first come first served basis (as we’re sure you already know) and we do have the right to not serve any one if we think they are going to ‘flip it’ (i.e. put it straight on to eBay et cetera) as this isn’t what RSD is about.

For Record Store Day in 2019 we teamed up with our wonderful neighbours at Create Coffee to have a full day of enjoyment through vinyl lovers being able to spin some of those RSD19 tunes on some decks, drink great coffee and eat some fantastic cakes – and we’re planning on doing the same again in 2020!

Our Record Store Day Queue Quiz (compiled by our very own Popmaster Dan) will be back to keep those brains ticking over with prizes including a £25 Record Token and a selection of other goodies!

We’ll be posting and listing all the potential top quality vinyl exclusives on our website and Social Media feeds before the day – and on Record Store Day itself we’ll keep you all up to date with what’s in and what’s not via our Twitter (@Spinning_Discs) feed

A big thanks to all of you who came along to see us on Record Store Day RSD19 – We’re sure that we’ll see you on Record Store Day 2020 – if not before!

And finally, don’t forget that it’s RSD everyday!

Record Store Day 2019

So Record Store Day 2019 is soon upon us!

This year’s list sees a wide range of releases to suit most tastes from 808 State to Zero 7 with Bowie in between.

We’ll be opening our doors on Saturday 13th April at 9am and closing them at 6pm.  To put you in the picture – last year the first person stood in the queue around 5.15am so if you want a guaranteed purchase you may have to get up a little earlier than usual.  All RSD stock is sold on a first come first served basis (as we’re sure you already know) and we do have the right to not serve any one if we think they are going to ‘flip it’ (i.e. put it straight on to eBay et cetera) as this isn’t what RSD is about.  Individuals can only buy one copy of a release and we’re putting a reasonable (at our discretion) item limit on the number of items any one person can buy.  We’ll try our best to keep you updated on stock through our social media channels (predominantly Twitter – @Spinning_Discs)

We’ll be outside again around 8am to hand out some free filter coffee, tea and perhaps a nice homemade piece of flapjack.

We’ve got a RSD Queue Quiz to keep those brains ticking over with prizes including a £25 Record Token and a selection of drinks from our friends at The Hop Hideout

We’re also teaming up with our lovely neighbours at Create Coffee and will be offering you a discount voucher for a ‘fancy’ coffee and some cake – plus we’ll have some decks set up so you can pop in and spin some of your new tunes!

Friels (RSD19 Partners) have dropped off a record that we’ve popped in our racks – whoever finds it might find themselves in for a treat!

PLUS we’ve got a couple of mystery bits and pieces too – oooh – what could they be?

Here is a list of the releases that we have secured for RSD19

RSD 2019 – Update 12042019

Please do be aware that the releases are in limited numbers and some are very limited

Finally, RSD is a day when like minding people gather, converse, meet for the first time, smile, discuss and do loads more great things – it’s a friendly day in a friendly local and broad community – we’re looking forward to seeing you on the day if not before!  However, don’t forget – It’s RSD everyday.
