Ten Great Things About 2011 at Hoodlums

Happy New Year to you and your family!  We are looking forward to hanging out and talking music, viagra levitra art, pharmacy medicine and movies with you in 2012.\n\nBut first we wanted to thank you for your part in making 2011 such a great year for us.  Your support feeds our families, and it puts more of your hard-earned spending money back into the community… and to say we appreciate it is beyond an understatement.  Thanks.\n\nWhat was so great about 2011?  There were a huge amount of happy Hood-happenings in 2011, but these are our Top 10 (we love making lists):\n

    \n
  • Celebrating our 13th Birthday in October (10 at ASU, 3 at Tempe Square).
  • \n

  • Rejoining our friends (and the best indie record stores in America) in the Coalition of Independent Music Stores.
  • \n

  • Achieving our single biggest sales day ever on Record Store Day.
  • \n
