Val’s halla is turning 50!

Well, it all began in 1972.  To be factually accurate, it began several years before as NMC Discount Records, but for what we now know as Val’s halla Records, this July marks the big 50.  We have already begun filling out the corporate AARP paperwork, but we have also been busy planning for a lot of amazing celebrations.  For that, we need your help!  Read on to learn about all of the amazing ways you can help us celebrate.  And stay tuned, there’s a lot more to come!

50th Cake

The first item up is our SHARE A MEMORY project.  If there is one thing Val was known for, it was telling stories.  Please share a memory or two from the last 50 yrs. Val stories, music stories, pet stories, whatever you’ve got! We can’t think of a better way to honor Val than by telling stories.  CLICK HERE to share.

Next, we are compiling a list of the Favorite 50 albums of Val’s halla customers from the last 50 years, so we need your input! Please nominate an album (or many) to be considered for this list. Later in the year, we will compile all of the nominees and take a vote, so CLICK HERE and get nominating!

A photo was taken on the last day at the old store and it was amazing. We are hoping to create a little photo magic again this year. If you were an employee of Val’s halla Records, a friend of Val, or anyone who has been impacted by this amazing place (we are going to need a wide lens), we’d love for you to join us. Tentatively, we are hoping to take a picture in the morning on Sat, Jul 30th before a huge day of festivities. To start, we want to start gathering contact information for everyone, so please CLICK HERE to sign up and we will keep you posted! Please forward this to anyone you can think of and don’t assume we have already contacted someone!
