    The Westerville Half Price Books location will be giving 20% off of all used vinyl on Saturday. They will also be putting out a ton of freshly discounted used records at $2.99 and $1. This information applies only to the Westerville Half Price Books location.

    Thunderpussy dropped the ball for yet another Record Store Day, disappointing.
