Today (April 21) is Record Store Day, a day held every April to celebrate independent record stores.
It’s the final Record Store Day for Moondance located at 425 George Street North in downtown Peterborough — Canada’s oldest independent record store having opened in 1972.
In January, owner Mike Taveroff announced he was closing the shop and retiring. The final day before Moondance closes for good is Saturday, April 28th.
One more week before we close on April 28. Join us today to check out the #RecordStoreDay releases plus the 70% off on most remaining stock! @kawarthaNOW @TheWireMegazine @Thewiggs23 @MichaelKHood @KawarthaTV @PtboChitChat @TrentArthur @ElectricCityOn

For Record Store Day 2018, Taveroff is offering 70 per cent off of most of the remaining stock.
He will have some of the new releases for Record Store Day — musicians from Abba to Bob Dylan are issuing new vinyl, while there are also re-releases from Arcade Fire, The Who, and AC/DC.
