HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Queen City Records in Hazard experienced Record Store Day for the first time.

Store leaders said they saw great success and plan on participating in future Record Store Days moving forward.

Co-owner Mary Jo Everidge said it was busy all day.

“We’ve had people camping out this morning,” she said. “We’ve had a couple customers here since six o’ clock this morning. We didn’t open until 11, so, we’ve had a very, very good turnout.”
