RECORD STORE OF THE MONTH

 

 

As you’ve no doubt worked out by now, we love record shops. Whether big or small, rocking a minimalist aesthetic or packing enough vinyl into their overflowing crates to wear down several lifetime’s worth of needles, we love how each and every one has something special in store for its customers. From the quirkiest locals to the big, gig-hosting powerhouses, every thirty-odd days we pick one to be our Record Store of the Month. They get a tasty gift from the Record Tokens team, and you get to discover the best independent record shops this country has to offer – it’s a win-win!

 

October's Record Store of the Month: Assai Records, Dundee

Assai Records

This month's winning shop – Assai Records in Dundee – is an independent record store, specialising in new and reissue vinyl across all genres. Under normal circumstances, the shop promotes “out store” events from some of the biggest names in the industry including Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol, Sam Fender, Foals, The Divine Comedy, Tom Walker, and Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream. We love Assai Records' continued support of Record Store Day and their active social media profile where they continually display their musical knowledge. 

Keith from the shop says: "We stock a wide range of exclusive vinyl editions which aren’t available from high street chains, as well as a huge selection of hifi turntables and accessories, t-shirts, gift ideas and merchandise.

Run by an experienced and passionate team of music lovers, Assai aims to provide what’s been missing from record retail for many; namely first-class service, and a love and respect for the music we sell.

We’re enormously grateful to the Record Tokens team for highlighting our store. Now more than ever, it’s hugely important to support your local independent businesses and Record Tokens are an ideal way to do just that. They’re convenient, easy to use, and encourage people to get out there and dig in record shops. Music is one of the greatest gifts you can give to someone, and letting them choose their own music can be even better!"

 

Congratulations to the entire Assai Records team! We hope you enjoy your luxury hamper of goodies – don't finish it all at once!

You can find Assai Records at 33 Union Street, Dundee. If you're round their neck of the woods be sure to pop in and give them a visit as soon as it is safe to do so, or check out their online shop – and don't forget your Record Tokens!
