As a part of its mission statement to connect music lovers to record sellers and highlight their importance, Discogs has announced a new annual Independent Record Store Month launching in June 2022. Discogs describes the event as: 


They’ll also be launching an archive of record store locations that Discogs frequenters can visit physically not only to purchase their orders instead of just getting them shipped or mailed, but also to explore the history of these record stores and realize their importance, and contribution to the music culture.

A part of this index will be a subsite that aims to gather “a curated collection of stories and guides for music lovers to dive deeper into the people and places that define these record stores.” All this is deemed to be “an evolution of our site VinylHub“, by Jeffrey Smith, Director of Marketing & Partnerships for Discogs.
