Introducing the 3hive Co-op Shop!

3hive Co-op Shop | shop.3hive.com

Hey friends,

Do you still love buying vinyl in this age of all-you-can-stream music subscription services?

Yeah, so do we. That’s why we’re introducing the 3hive Co-op Shop – so we can buy records together!

Here’s how it works: when we buy records for ourselves, we buy a couple extra for the Co-op.
This allows us to get wholesale rates from labels and distributors. Then we sell these records – brand new, sealed, unplayed – at a “co-op” discount on a first-come, first-served basis. Share the buying, share the savings!

There are lots of other things we can do as a co-op but saving money on records we all want to buy sounds like a good start, right?

We’re going to kick this off with some of our top albums of 2016:

Todd’s Top 3 Bundle

Monster Rally Mystery Cove LP (Gold Robot GRR046)

Woods City Sun Eater in the River of Light LP w/ download code (Woodsist 085)
