BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Music lovers gathered at a local record store Saturday to celebrate Record Store day.
It is a day that celebrates independently owned record stores and the art of music worldwide. Record Store Day started in 2007 to spread the word of the unique music culture.
There are over 700 independently owned record stores in the United States and thousands of international stores.
Wayne Zagan, Record Theatre Store Manager said, "A lot of people thought that when CDs were coming out, they were going to take over the industry, but now vinyl is coming back big time. ...We sell a lot of used vinyl and there's a lot of new vinyl coming out, and record manufacturers give them to independent stores like us."
Special vinyl and CD released are made specifically for the day. Hundreds of artists in the U.S. and other countries make special appearances at the event.
Saturday's celebration took place at Record Theatre on Main St. in Buffalo.
