[BROADTIME STORES] - Slipknot + James Bay Delays, New Store Survey Reminder, Social Media Assets, What's New This Week, and More - July 7, 2022

 

Greetings everyone, 

Hope you were all able to enjoy the holiday weekend. 

An FYI that we're experiencing some shipping delays with two popular titles that streeted last Friday and tomorrow respectively - Slipknot and James Bay. More info is below. 

Also, a reminder that we're still collecting responses in a new store survey (seven quick, multiple-choice questions) that will help us glean more insights into your business to hopefully better serve you with future updates. If you can take a few minutes to answer the survey, which is linked here and below, it would be hugely helpful.  

As always, we have our list of social assets currently available, newly featured preorders, what's streeting this week and titles we're currently blocking across our sites.

If you have questions this weekend or at any point, we're always here to help. Remember to shoot a note to support@broadtime.com so that your note goes to multiple members of our team. 

Music matters!
Jon and the Broadtime team

Slipknot + James Bay Delays 🕖

We received word from AEC that two popular titles are experiencing shipping delays - Slipknot's Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses, which was released last Friday and Leap from James Bay, which streets tomorrow. 

Neither title has arrived at AEC's Warehouse yet, as we continue to experience supply chain issues on a number of fronts. 

There were high numbers of orders placed for both titles across Broadtime sites, particularly for Slipknot. Please know that if you had orders for those titles, there is a possibility customers who ordered them could reach out inquiring about the status. 

We'll pass along updates on these releases once we have them. 

In the meantime, let us know if you have questions on either - support@broadtime.com
