WIRRAL’S newest vinyl shop is taking part in its first Record Store Day this year.

Dig Vinyl based on Banks Road in West Kirby announced it would be participating in 2024’s Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20.

Record Store Day, which began back in 2007, celebrates and promotes the distinctive culture of record shops with special vinyl releases made exclusively for the event and stocked only by participating retailers on the day.

Over the years Record Store Day has evolved into a prominent music celebration globally, involving thousands of record shops from all over the world, including more than 260 in the UK.

Dig Vinyl’s second permanent retail shop saw the Merseyside brand branch out over the water to the Wirral, joining the vibrant independent retail scene of West Kirby.

The new shop marked a significant milestone in Dig Vinyl’s decade-long journey, following three expansions and a strategic move within Bold Street, and emerging as a committed independent business in the landscape of the North’s music and vinyl culture. 

Dig Vinyl West Kirby opened in November 2023 on the bustling Banks Road, just a short walk from the station and a stone's throw from the beach.

The shop stocks the usual diversity of genres, eras and sounds that its customers have come to expect, including rare finds from America, Japan, and beyond.

Dig Vinyl West Kirby will be open for Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20.

Customers should drop in to the West Kirby shop with their RSD requests and fill out the RSD Wishlist located at the counter by March 10.

All Record Store Day releases are exclusive to the event and sold in-store on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to plan accordingly, as items cannot be reserved or saved.
