RSD DROPS

We open at 8AM Saturday, June 18th, then close at 6PM and move to online sales the next morning per RSD guidelines.

Ordering  for  items to be shipped for non-locals will open at 6:30 PM. 

We are checking in RSD items all week and this page won't be 100% accurate until Friday, June 17 in the evening (hopefully). As we check items, they will populate this page in real time.

We're so excited for Record Store Day in 2022! It's a great list and we are going to do our best to make this a great experience for all of our wonderful customers! To find out more about this year's releases, here's a link to the COMPLETE RSD LIST

This page is designed to answer the most commonly asked questions we get leading up to RSD, however if you have anything that's not answered here, please shoot us an email at info@lunchboxrecords.com. These RSD Drops are dedicated to independent brick & mortar record stores and the products offered are designed to incentivize folks to go visit their local record store. You cannot pre-order or have RSD items placed on hold, as this violates the pledge we have signed with RSD, so please don't ask. - Doors will open at 8am EDT.

Please maintain a safe distance from others while you do wait.

•We will allow 25 customers in at a time and then it will be a "one in, one out" situation

•Masks are no longer required but they are suggested.

•Each person is allowed to buy one copy per RSD title

•Each customer will be allowed up to 15 minutes to shop. It should not take this long but this is to make sure we can get people in and out quickly and safely.

•We ask that you primarily shop the RSD items and anything else you can ask and we will grab for you. Again, we want to keep things moving so everyone has a chance to shop.

•The shop will close at 6:00PM on Saturday and all remaining stock will go online at approximately 8:00AM EDT Sunday morning. 

•We will re-open on Sunday from 1PM - 6PM

•Remaining stock will 19be available for purchase at 8:00am EDT on Sunday, June 19th. Not in the evening like recent RSD Drop events, please note that items will be live for purchase the next day as RSD events at 8:00am EDT for locals, shipping orders will be at 6:30 PM on Sunday. 

A few very important notes regarding online orders: 

•RSD items will be available only for local pickup on our site at 8 AM Sunday. This is to make sure that local customers that have supported us get a chance first since we understand some people do not want to come in the store. When you check out you must choose "Local PIckup" on the cart information page. If you don't it won't let you check out. If you do order this way and don't live in NC we will cancel your order. 

•Each person is allowed to buy one copy per RSD title. If you try to buy multiple copies you will not be allowed to check out and will receive a message telling you which items violate the policy. This is in fairness to everyone to make sure as many people get their wants as possible.

•Items in your cart are NOT reserved for you. Our cart system works like MANY other online retailers, in that items are not reserved until the checkout process is completed. We realize this may be problematic for some folks, as some people are used to ticketing websites that have a hold feature enabled. We do not and will not have this capability, so please be warned of this BEFORE you order.

• "Add To Cart" buttons will appear on THIS PAGE first, and not on individual product pages.

• We DO NOT ship internationally. Many of the distributors we source product from have export restrictions and we would risk losing our accounts with them if we were to sell internationally. Sorry! Please do not order items, choose pickup and then try to get us to ship to you overseas. Your order will be canceled.
