Shop FAQ

I have been chasing a certain product and I can’t get it anywhere. Can you order it in for me?
Yes, we can. We specialise in doing specialty orders for people. We will go the extra distance to try and track something down for you. We have a huge catalogue of products we can order from and many suppliers all around the world. Feel free to contact us, or come into the store if there is anything you are after. Providing it is still in print we can get it for you.

Is everything that is listed on the webstore in the physical store as well? 
Not everything. The webstore has its own separate inventory in a separate location to the physical store. Therefore there will be times when something is listed in stock on the webstore, but not in stock in the physical store and vice versa. The location of the webstore inventory is close to the physical store, so we can make that stock easily available in the physical store as well.

Are the prices the same on the webstore to the physical store? 
They are not. There will be some slight differences at times. This can be caused from wholesale prices and currency fluctuations. The physical store works works on round figures.

I am a solo artist/in a band from Adelaide, will Clarity Records stock our release?
Yes, we will. We do all local artists a consignment deal of 33% off the RRP. Therefore, the artist sets the price they would like to sell the release for, and the store takes 33% once the item has sold. Alternatively, you tell us the wholesale price and we will put our mark up on that. Get in contact with us via the contact page if you would like to let us know about your release, or simply come into the store with 3 copies and we will take it from there.

I am a solo artist/in a band from interstate / overseas, will Clarity Records stock our release?
Similar deal to what we do with all Adelaide artists, we are especially interested if your band is coming to Adelaide. However if you or your band has never been to Adelaide, don't have much of a profile in Adelaide, or if you have no intention of coming to Adelaide/touring, then we suggest you get in contact with us first before sending over anything. If this is the case, then I would say we wouldn’t be interested for the time being.

Can I purchase online and pick up in store? 
Yes you can. We are located in the Adelaide CBD. This will save you money on postage. Simply choose the store pick up option in the checkout procedure and we will make your purchased product available to pick up during our stores business hours.

Are there any positions available at Clarity Records?
Unfortunately no. Clarity Records is a small business that can not afford to take on any extra staff.

Does Clarity Records do work experience?
Due to the size of the shop, counter space and the work load, Clarity Records unfortunately can not offer work experience.

I am involved with something that I believe would suit your shop (eg. Zine, Book, Art, Craft, Jewellery, etc, etc), will you stock our product?
Possibly. Contact us. Anything arts, crafts or jewellery related please attention the email to Laura.

You guys are just a punk shop, right?
We specialise in Punk and Hardcore related products, however we stock all kinds of music from Metal, indie, Rock ‘N Roll, Blues, Jazz, Prog, Soul, Funk and more. We also have band merch, books, zines, handmade arts & craft and more. We have both new and secondhand products.

Do you have Vinyl?
Vinyl is our main seller, therefore we make sure we are always well stocked and always up to date with new releases. We are also always restocking our secondhand vinyl section.

Do you buy secondhand Vinyl & CDs?
We do buy secondhand vinyl and we are very interested to know what you have. We have to be picky, therefore what we buy and how much we pay varies from title to title. Please don’t ask how much we would play for a record unless you physically bring it into the shop. We are even more picky with CDs, as the market is getting tougher with CDs, we can not buy everything.

I’ve noticed Clarity does instore shows. Can my band do one or can I organise something?
Possibly. We are open to the idea of having more instores. We have found that acoustic instores work best as the space is a bit too tight for full bands. Contact us and we can discuss it

Who owns Clarity Records?
Matt & Laura Horvath are the owners of Clarity Records. Come in and say Hi.

Clarity Records is a record label, right? Will you be interested in releasing my bands record?
Clarity Records is a record label as well as a shop. Feel free to send us your demo, however we are very selective with what we will release and only release Adelaide music.

So where abouts exactly are you?
On Pulteney Street. We are right next to the Hungry Jacks that's on the corner of Rundle Street.
