Goodbye Tower Records

Is the era of the record store over?
Tower Records was sold in a bankruptcy auction to a high bidder who plans to liquidate. “Tower Records, which has 89 stores in 20 states and owes creditors about $200 million, filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in August. In its filing, the company said it has been hurt by an industrywide decline in music sales, downloading of online music and competition from big-box stores such as Wal-Mart.”
