A final update

Cardinal Record Company is closing down effective September 21, 2022. We had a fun run, however, due to unforeseen circumstances and economic headwinds, we have no choice but to close our doors effective immediately.

Here's what it means for you:

1. If you have an open pre-order with us, if we cannot fulfill it within the next couple of weeks we will issue a refund to the original method of payment. This may take 5-7 business days. It may take us a few days to get through all of the open pre-orders, please be patient with us.

2. If you have an open order from us that you ordered during our 40% off sale in the last couple of weeks, we got it! These are being shipped to clear out some of our existing inventory. Due to a surge in demand, however, it may take 5-7 business days for these to ship.

3. If you are an active Cardinal+ Member, your membership has been canceled and refunded for the current month.

To the community that we love so much--thank you! We opened up our doors 18 months ago and set out to change the way shopping for vinyl online was done. We succeeded. We made vinyl collecting more accessible, offered a seat at the table for collectors of all ages, and we're so proud of the work we've done.

This is goodbye for now. We'll all still be around and supporting other independent record stores.

Thank you, for everything.
