    Default Day of release Record Stores

    I remember going to the record store at 12:00 am to buy Eat em and Smile do they still do that anymore? Have the record out at 12 am on release day and stay open extra late?

    Back in the day places like Tower Records did this but I'm not sure if there are anymore places like this. Maybe a place like Virgin Records in NYC but probably not many around the country especially in smaller towns. These days your best bet would be like a Wal-Mart or some big store that is open 24 hrs. Even those store might not have the cd on the shelves right at midnight. Itunes and the internet kind of took away that standing in line to buy a new album at midnight.

    I'm going for the Wal-mart option myself. Although the midnight record store releases are fun. I did that when BOVI and 3 were released.

    Yeah, best bet is to go to 24/7 store that sells music, and even then: you might have to as someone to dig back on the dock to pull it out.

    Yea, good luck with that Walmart plan. Twice now I've gone to Wally World the morning of an "exclusive Walmart" release only to have them look at me with a blank stare and not know anything about it. Funny thing was, playing on all the tvs in the department was the concert DVD that was included in the package! When I pointed that out to the clerk, he said "Yea...I don't know anything about that." Ugh. I emailed Walmart and complained about it and the store manager did call me the next day to apologize. Too late. This time I ordered mine thru the VH store & when I get it, I'll do a little happy dance.

    I might have to buy it on iTunes to make sure I get it at midnight, but I'll definitely check out Wal Mart too.

    I'll probably do the same.

    I don't listen to CDs much anymore, but I want to have it anyways.

    I can't wait, but other than us diehards, I don't think a lot of people care about this new record. So, I doubt any stores will be opening at midnight for this release. That said, Best Buy would be the BEST shot at getting the disc tuesday, sorry no parties.....
