Very sad news: Yesterday a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of Tower Records to Great American Group, which is moving with shocking speed to liquidate and close all Tower stores. The liquidation sale begins today, just one day after the sale was approved.
This summer I took the above photo of Tower's beautiful new store at Buena Park Mall, which replaced their longtime, rather dilapidated, location on Beach Boulevard. I had hoped the store's new location boded well for the chain.
It's a disappointing day. I've shopped at Tower my entire lifetime, and especially enjoyed heading over there in November to scout out new Christmas music. Now Tower is part of my life's "Yesterland."
Thanks for the memories...
