Third Man Records, the vinyl-championing Nashville-based record store opened by Detroit native and Grammy Award-winner Jack White, will open the doors to it’s Detroit store on November 27 for Record Store Day Black Friday.

In an announcement, the company said that, “Those with an ear to the underground and a foot on the third rail of the overground, blearing Bambi-like into the oncoming head lamps of progress, will no doubt be clued to the news that nearly luckys seven years after we champagne-launched our flagship HQ in Nashville, Tennessee, Third Man Records is expanding / repatriating itself to the blessed Rust Belt origin story environs of the Cass Corridor in Detroit, Michigan. D-Day approaches and with it a myriad of updates and exciting announcements of surprise releases, limited editions, exclusive Detroit merchandise, eye-popping in-house attractions and contraptions, and much more will be rolling out in the lead up to our Grand Opening.”

The store is located at 441 W. Canfield St., formerly the flagship store for Shinola, in Detroit’s Cass Corridor,

The celebration will feature three live performances -- the first-ever in-store show by longtime Detroit garage rockers the Gories, singer-songwriter Margo Price and Lillie Mae Rische, who plays in White’s band and will be accompanied by groupmates Dominic John Davis and Fats Kaplin. Performance times will be announced soon. Third Man is also promising “more news of what to expect” as well as “a dream-come-true announcement.”

Third Man will also be selling exclusive 7-inch vinyl single replications of nine early singles on Berry Gordy’s Tamla label, including Barrett Strong’s “Money,” the Supremes’ “Buttered Popcorn” and Marvin Gaye’s “Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide.”

Updates will be made at thirdmanrecords.com.
