"Being an ERA member & attending meetings has provided
me with an an invaluable opportunity to meet other like minded
indies, share information, find solutions to collective issues
& be more involved in the decisions that affect my business
every day. We all like to think we can survive on our own &
remain fiercely independent but we all need each other, can support
each other & can learn from each other. ERA provides the means
to do this" Natasha Youngs,
"Record Store Day has grown over the last decade to become
one of the, if not the most important events on the indie shop
calendar. ERA have stood up to the plate to administrate every
aspect of the day, from liaising with labels on releases, managing
the PR, promoting hundreds of indie stores nationwide and working
with distributors to ensure that the traffic is managed and boxes
get delivered. It is pivotal to it's continued success that all
indies with a voice join the conversation, contribute and work
together as one alongside ERA." Rupert Morrsion,
"ERA's Operations Committee continuously monitors
suppliers performance and gives feedback between retailers and
distributors to achieve a more efficient and effective supply chain
mechanism. In other words, if your boxes arrive late or damaged, or
if you have any other supplier issues, tell us, and we'll tell
them, make your voice heard!" Alan Jordan,
