So... where's the deal?
I noticed these, on a display near the entrance.

It's worth checking attics in case you have a Garrard 301 turntable stored away, they are becoming very valuable.

I set my TT up again recently and wanted to buy some new records and was shocked about expensive they've become. I haven't seen Nevermind cheaper anywhere else.
Vinyl albums were only around £6-£8 quid when I was growing up .. bloody rip off merchants

Sainsbury's :-)
Based on inflation, £8 in 1980 would have bought you the same as £36 in today's money, and you can't roll a joint on a download!…tml
Vinyl - why would you?

39/6 when I was a lad.Mind you wages were around £8 a week then.
The irony is that below the decent audiophile vinyl pressings they sell are the same cheap and nasty kind of turntables that pushed people away from vinyl in the first place.
no celtic frost?

They're cheaper now than they've ever been.
Why can't you order these records from Sainsbury's online? Why no stores in Kent selling records. Kent is and has always been an area full of musical heritage and with a thirving music scene. Perhaps this is a good thing as there are many small records shops and excellent records fairs all around Kent. Support them instead. Original records for sale at much cheaper prices than Sainsbury's.
