Wholesale Vinyl from Warp/Ninjatune/etc.

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends.  I could use some advice!

Wife and I decided to open up a small shop selling LP's and vintage clothing.  We already have most of our stock ready to go but  I am wanting to specialize the records (new stock) according to the labels listed in the title as well as smaller more indy stuff in line (style wise) with the likes of this forum.  

Aside from directly contacting labels such as Occult Research and others that size, would anyone know the best route to getting some wholesale deals on new stock from the bigger names?  I've got some bases covered but will use any info really.  

As an artist myself, I really want to promote more creative and forward stuff!   If any of you creators would like to personally put some of your stuff in our shop feel free to reach out to me.  I'm open to talking!  

 

Thanks for taking the time!

You've guessed correct.  

Up until this point the business has been resale based.  This will be my first time stocking new records.  So I'm super grateful for any tips or meaningful insights shared.

Since you're based in the US (presumably), I would try getting in touch with WARP in the US (they have an office in NYC) and see what options are about domestic distribution, as overseas imports will kill any potential profits you might think of making.

Ah, Thanks.  I couldn't find a contact link on warp.net so was wondering how to make the connection.

https://redeyeworldwide.com/ is the Warp US distributor I believe.  A lot of times you can just google the label's name + distributor to see who to contact.  Sometimes the info will be on discogs entries for the label as well.
