Shop is first to sell tokens to keep vinyl alive

30th May 2018

A MUSIC shop in Warminster are the first shop in the country to sell one of the new Record Token gift cards which were launched earlier this week.

Raves from the Graves in Weymouth Street are proud to be the first independent record shop to sell one of the tokens which can be used to purchase vinyl, CD or cassette music.

Business owner, Richard Churchyard said: “We would like to thank our customers for their continued support and whilst we have definitely seen an increase in vinyl sales over the last five years, the people of Wiltshire have always demonstrated a true appreciation of music.

“We are proud to have recently celebrated our 20th anniversary proving that in Wiltshire vinyl never died.”

During the early 90s, the original Record Token market was at its peak and worth millions. With the vinyl revival growing strongly for over 5 years, it’s safe to say the British love affair with vinyl is here to stay.

The Record Token is being launched in partnership with National Book Tokens.
