Nov 30, 2010


I'm being lazy and procrastinating on my weekly Tuesday email I send out. I thought that maybe if I organized some of the cool stuff to highlight here, that it might make it easier for me to hammer it out in the email. Justification...

So, what to share?

First let me thank all of you for the amazing support over the past holiday weekend. We broke records for Black Friday and our first ever Small Business Saturday was a HUGE success thanks to all of you Amex users. If you didn't get a chance to spend $25 with us to get your Amex rebate we have good news - American Express is extending the offer, so we're extending the chance to use your Amex card at Slowtrain! Here's what you do: 1) Register your American Express card by clicking here. 2) Buy $25 or more at Slowtrain between now and December 31, 2010. 3) Kick back and wait for Amex to credit your statement $25.

FREE MUSIC PEOPLE! How great is that!?

What else?

Well, in the snowstorm that was Sunday Chris and I took the time to totally re-tool our used CD department. We cleaned out the shelves and pulled a TON of used stuff that will now be priced at an affordable $2 or $3. We're still figuring out how to organize those boxes at the store for y'all to dig through, but if you want some used CD savings just ask and we'll let you paw through the loads of discount titles. There's some good stuff in there too...we're happy to make recommendations from those discount boxes if you need help choosing. Come load up, these CDs make great and affordable stocking stuffers...

Oh! And yesterday we got our test pressings in for Slowtrain Record's Alexis Gideon LP. THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! If you come into the store today, chances are we'll be playing this over and over - you know, to make sure the tests sound good, and also because we are ridiculously thrilled that this is almost all done and ready to be released. Yay!

And 1 more gift idea for this holiday season and I'll bring this long blog to a close. Sign yourself or a loved one up to receive our CD of the Month Club for 2011. We'll send a staff selected CD to your door every month - and we usually send a lil' bonus gift too! Check out our 2010 picks here. And sign up for 2011's subscription here.

Okay, enough rambling from me. I need to get to work...
