Thread Name: Tower Records - to be liquidated (and rise again)
Subject: RE: Tower Records - to be liquidated
HOw things change. Local libraries in my area have a selection equivalent to the inventory at Tower and other such stores. Same goes for Videos (DVDs now).

There is, however, one type of store that will flourish and there is one in my area---a small video store that stocks about every film ever made. Not just the pop stuff one finds at Blockbuster. Also--the owner is knowledgeable in all genres of film and likes to discuss them with you.

Now for a bit of nostalgia. How times change---this gives away my age (or era)---while growing up there were record stores (78s at the time) and you could take a batch into a private room to listen---and hopefully buy some (all of 79 cents or so at the time). No headphones then---just a turntable (steel needle - or cactus) and a speaker.
