With many of these stores now experiencing a catastrophic drop-off in footfall or having already closed their doors there are fears that some may not survive if something is not done urgently to stimulate sales. With that in mind many music companies have already pledged their support for this new campaign which has been named #loverecordstores by sharing their stories, telling what record stores means to them. All music lovers are invited to participate. All that is needed to do is share a post on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #LoveRecordStores and say what independent record stores have meant to you.
This is a homage to the world’s best record stores. It will grow as stores come on board to tell their story and to introduce the audience to their world. With the hope that this will become a handy guide for record buyers or music lovers everywhere.
