Fall '22 Update New

October 15, 2022

Summer flew past in no time and Fall is upon us. The days are getting darker, shorter and colder – but Metal is still here and keeps the flame within our dark hearts and spirits burning.

Physical Concert Tickets

I am now selling physical tickets for most of the Inertia Entertainment shows in the shop. Note that some are only available online. Payment for tickets has to be in cash. Each ticket price includes a service fee (ca. 10%) but is excluded from HST.

Ontario Ruling Change

A new ruling effective in Ontario and a few other provinces in Canada now allows retailers like myself to recuperate their credit card processing fees by charging a surcharge of up to 2.4% for credit card payments (Visa and Mastercard) to customers. To keep my operations cost under control I am now adding a surcharge of 2% of the total amount to your invoice before HST. I will remind customers of this new ruling and encourage them to use debit or cash to avoid the extra charge. I apologize for the inconvenience.

What's coming to the shop?

My order with Bitter Loss Records from Australia is on its way! There are going to be new releases and re-stock of this label's impressive roster. Also in the making is an order with Chilean label Burning Coffin Records (tapes and some vinyl) as well as Cult Never Dies from the UK. Yes, that's right, there are some cool books and fanzines hitting the shop soon!

Event Reminder: 1st Year Birthday

On October 30th, on Devil's Night, the shop's first birthday will be celebrated at Mom's Basement (1430 Danforth Avenue). You will receive a free raffle ticket with each purchase made in the store. Draw will take place at the birthday bash, but you don't need to attend to win. Of course, it would be nice to have a great turnout!

Store Hours for November

Please note that the store hours will be reduced within the first two weeks in November.

As usual, I will be available via social media and my cell (416.799.0435)

That's it for now. Hope to see you in the shop! Stay Metal! \w/
