ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Saturday was National Record Store Day. People were already lined up outside Record Archive at 6 a.m. Saturday to try to get first pick of their favorite albums.            

It turns out that records still have a lot of appeal in today’s digital age.

“I really like having that piece of physical media, being able to hold it and look at the artwork,” said Julien, who camped out in front of Record Archive. “Not only is it a hobby, but I meet a lot of different people that are interested in it, making new friends.”

Record Archive said they were stocked with hundreds of limited record releases to celebrate the day.

For vinyl record fans, it’s a national holiday. Music fans look forward to the release of limited edition special albums to mark the occasion every year. 

Record Archive celebrated with $1 records, live music, and happy hour events throughout the day!
