Thread Name: Tower Records - to be liquidated (and rise again)
Subject: RE: Tower Records - to be liquidated
Last night I too made a farewill visit, in my case to the Tower store in Harvard Square, Cambridge, which once had a strong folk section. What was left of the CD stock was 70% off but it was thoroughly picked over like a long-dead animal carcass and I found nothing of interest. I assume it will close in the next few days.

On-line shopping can never replace the experience of flipping through racks of CDs (or, in ancient times, records) and stumbling across an unexpected find. Just one more small way in which the world becomes a poorer place...
