The below stores are listed on the Record Store Day website as stores that are participating on Saturday. However, their disclaimer says not to rule out all stores without asking them directly.
DISCLAIMER: There are a lot of independent stores that participate in Record Store Day. Not all of them will choose to participate in all promotions, or carry all releases. Just because a store is listed here does NOT mean it will have the goodie or record you're looking for. That said, find a store near you and check with them directly. It's always a good idea to be BFFs with your neighborhood record store.
