Independent record stores are alive — and this Record Store Day, they're ready to sell out

Record stores are alive and well, and Record Store Day wants to make sure you know it. Featuring band appearances, limited edition records and tons of exclusives, there is no better time to start or expand your collection. Come out this Saturday, April 21, to local record stores, such as Schoolkids Records, to get special deals and merchandise.  Current UNC students, such as sophomore Robert Fisher, have found a sense of passion and sentimentality through buying records. “If they’re my favorite albums from (an artist), I feel like I need them in a physical form for some reason,” Fisher said. “It’s also a good way to keep track of your favorite albums through time.”
