Official Charts Company Launch Indie Record Store Chart

The Official Charts Company have announced new weekly chart for the biggest selling releases from independent record shops. With Record Store Day coming up this weekend (21st April), this will give record stores more cause for optimism.

The new chart will draw more attention to Independent Record Stores, quashing the popular myth that they are rapidly dying out. The music buying public still love Independent Record Stores and this chart, alongside Record Store Day looks to demonstrate that.

In an interview with CMU, the OCC Managing Director Martin Talbot suggested that “Independent record shops are more important than ever in helping introduce music fans to new, interesting music…and (the chart) will give a true representation of physical sales across all the indie stores up and down the country”.
