As seen on COF Greatest Hits and Acoustic Hits will be released on limited edition picture disc vinyls. 4 vinyls in totality. Anybody is going to go to a local participating record shop to buy it?

Difficult, as I would not know which shops are participating. And if I did, I would still have to travel for 1 hour or so just to get to the shop. (Not that I really need the Cure's hits on vinyl - as I started in the '80s, part of my collection is on vinyl, including a few 7" and 12" singles.)

CoF now has a list of shops for UK und US:

check the record store day website or look for record store day in your language on your browser and you'll find the infos. (ex: 'disquaire day' in french)

By pure coincidence, I did get to see a Facebook post from a record store not too far from me, they announced that if anyone wants a certain item on RSD they can order it (as it's impossible for them to have all the records in stock for RSD).  :)

Thus, I'd suggest if anyone wants to have this vinyl, check with your favourite record store if they'll have it and/or order it for RSD.

I checked several records stores in my country (France) and they answered the whole interest of this day was not to tell in advance what they would have...

Well, that may be the thought behind Record Store Day, that people go and look and maybe find something. But the collectors will of course look for certain items!

Today I checked my local dealer and my impression was that they
weren't aware that this day even exists. I couldn't pre-order the LPs
as well, so I'll have to return to the shop on that day.  :?

All local records shop do not take part in this RSD event, it's their choice to do so or not. Also, it's not supposed to be allowed to pre-order copies of the records produced for this RSD, that's the whole point, you have to go to the shop on the day hoping you will find the rare gem that maybe they didn't even order...

Opinions among the shops seem to differ. As described above, one shop announced that it is possible to pre-order stuff, as simply they can't afford to have all the RSD stuff on stock that day!
