Why Choose Dig In Records as Your Record Shop?

According to Record Store Day, there are over 260 record shops in the UK - and that’s just the ones involved in the event! So, with so many fantastic shops across the nation, why shop with Dig In Records?

Well, we’re glad you asked. In this article, we’re taking a moment to look at the amazing work we get up to and why we think it’s worth picking up your wax from us.

From being a truly independent local shop to having an exceptional boutique in-store experience, today’s content is about showing off everything Dig In Records has to offer.

Local Shop, Global Sounds

When you step into Dig In Records, you'll see a record shop full of quality releases with musical treasures from every corner of the globe. We know how diverse our customer base is, and we want to make sure that if there’s a disc in demand then we’ll have it ready to go out the door!

We’ve also got some of the most hotly anticipated pre-orders, which you can see here. 2024 is set to be full of modern and future classics, so you’ll want to keep an eye on that page! We’re particularly excited for the upcoming IDLES release, TANGK and The Smile’s Wall Of Eyes.

Our carefully curated collection includes everything from rock to jazz and from hip-hop to metal. Dig In Records is the record shop with the world's sounds right at your fingertips.

Record Recommendations We Know You'll Love

We may be up to our noses in records, but we're more than just a record shop – we're your personal music guides. 

Like any quality music store, we genuinely love music and take great pride in connecting our customers with their soon-to-be favourite artists. That means when a customer pops in and says hello, our friendly team can introduce them to a world of great new music. Dig In Records is a space where music enthusiasts can come together, exchange recommendations, and connect over their shared love for sound. 

So, whether you're into the artists no one else has heard of or a fan of arena-filling artists, our team is here to enhance your library. Make every visit to Dig In Records a memorable and enriching experience.

Hidden Gems and Rare Finds

While we love new releases, we never forget about the amazing music of decades gone by. Flick through the crates at Dig In Records and you’ll come across some amazing releases that you won’t want to let go of until it’s back home on your turntable. 

Excitingly, we’re in the process of adding some seriously great first-pressing stock, including Hendrix, The Beatles, Queen and Black Sabbath! If you’re a fan of the 60s and 70s, you’ll want to keep an eye out; some of these are so rare that we’ve got to keep them under lock and key as online exclusives.

Not just this, but we also pride ourselves on offering a great range of quality pre-loved vinyl. That 70s classic you’ve been searching for? We just might have it. The 90s R&B disc you never thought you’d find? Keep your eyes peeled and you could find it here. 

If you’re looking for a particularly rare find though, we’ve got our dedicated box of rarities in store. This is just one crate and it’s full of releases that are absolute diamonds of the vinyl world. Unsurprisingly, the stock is constantly changing so pop in and take a look!

It doesn’t stop there either. We also buy pre-owned records, meaning if there’s a record you’re dying to pick up, why not let us know and trade in some old vinyl? Just send us a message; we’d love to have a chat.

Supporting a Local, Independent High Street

We love a unique high street, and the special thing about UK towns is the shops; specifically the independent ones that offer inimitable, interesting and meaningful experiences. We hope that Dig In Records is exactly that as we proudly call ourselves an independent record shop - and we just so happen to be situated above an independent bookshop! 

Choosing us means you’re supporting a high street with character and charm, and allows us to make our experience even better every time you shop with us. We love independent retail and we’ll never lose sight of the joy of surfing through boxes full of records.

Swing by, say hello, and be part of the culture at Dig In Records; we’ve got seriously good coffee and everyone is welcome. 

An Unbeatable Vinyl-Diving Experience

Is there anything else as simple and satisfying as flicking through boxes of vinyl? It’s one of life’s simple pleasures and the stock we have is guaranteed to make you stop and reminisce about the albums you love so much. 

If you’re local to the Woking area then we recommend using our click-and-collect service; you can pop in, pick up a record and have a quick surf through everything we’ve got in on that particular day. 

The best part is that we’re constantly getting new records in, so every time you visit, there will be new treasures and gems for you to stumble across. Just don’t wait too long or you might miss out!

Connect with Like-Minded Music Lovers

We know the importance of community at Dig In Records, and we love meeting all of the wonderful people who come through our doors. Conversations with customers are always an absolute treat, and we love being so ingrained in the music community. 

So, if you’re in Woking then come and say hello. We’re a super friendly bunch and love getting to know the community. 

Old School Charm, Modern Convenience

So we’ve mentioned that we’ve got the ‘flipping through vinyl records’ thing covered. Our physical store provides an authentic old-school experience, inviting customers to immerse themselves in the tactile pleasure of finding records in person. But what about digital? Well, we’ve got that figured out pretty well too.

For those who prefer the ease and efficiency of online shopping, we offer a seamless click-and-collect service and doorstep delivery options. We want music to be for everyone all over the nation, so our online experience means that the magic of discovering new music remains accessible and enjoyable, from Dundee to Devon!

Thanks for Your Support, and Here’s to 2024!

As we wrap up, we want to say thank you to the vibrant community that makes Dig In Records so much more than just a record shop. Your support not only fuels our commitment to providing exceptional music but also plays an invaluable role in creating such a welcoming space. On behalf of both Justin and Paul at Dig In Records, thank you!

As we embark on 2024, we're excited to continue providing the same great experience and music. Here's to a triumphant 2024, filled with the discovery of fantastic tunes, new connections, and the joy of exploring the world of music together. We’ve got some exciting things planned for the year ahead and even have some events in the pipeline. 

Stay tuned and thank you for being a part of our journey!
