Record Store Day 2014 was on Saturday, April 19. All sales figures are for the entire week, Monday-Sunday (week ending April 19, 2014) in the U.S.
“Record Store Day keeps shining the spotlight on the experience that Independent Record Stores uniquely brings to music fans,” says David Bakula, SVP Client Development & Insights, Nielsen Entertainment. “Propelled by Record Store Day, Independent Record Stores had their highest weekly Physical Album share in SoundScan’s history. It has become a major music event that that compels artists to deliver premium content and drives music consumers to Independent Record Stores.”
