Thread Name: Tower Records - to be liquidated (and rise again)
Subject: RE: Tower Records - to be liquidated
Well, I paid a final visit to two of the Tower stores in Sacramento, including the original store on Watt Avenue. The bookstores closed today, and the record stores will close sometime next week. CD's were 70% off and DVD's were 60% off. 60 percest off the usual $24.95 Tower list price is often about what I pay for DVD's at Amazon, so I didn't find many bargains. Still, it was nice to stop in one last time.
The two stores have been leased to another recod company, but it sounds like it will sell mostly top-40 stuff.
Sacramento has always been proud of Tower. It's a shame it's almost gone.
