For anniversary sale, Electric Fetus turns to reservations

With a $25 donation to local nonprofits, customers can reserve a time slot to browse records at the iconic shop

As Minneapolis music staple Electric Fetus turns 52, it has concocted an elaborate plan to allow fans to browse records for up to an hour this Saturday. 

In order to reserve an arrival time to shop Saturday, customers must donate at least $25 to one of three charities: Association for Black Economic Power Pimento Relief Fund, Twin Cities Music Community Trust or Outfront Minnesota. 

After signing up for a morning or afternoon slot, the shop will contact customers so that they can select the donation recipient and set a specific time to ensure social distancing.

Each person needs their own reservation, and only two people will be allowed in every 15 minutes, with no more than eight customers at a time. Customers are allowed to browse for up to one hour. 

The store is also offering customers a punch card for 20 percent off their purchases valid for three visits by July 31. There will also be special offers Saturday from Minneapolis businesses Town Hall Brewery, Palmer's Bar, Kramarczuk's and No. 12 Cider. 

The punch card will remain available through July 15.
