It’s true. The store was an amazing collection rumored to be over a million pieces before the big sales happened, prior to moving. Even with a few chunks sold off, there’s still hundreds of thousands of LPs there. I’ve seen it just today. In fact I personally took the picture on this ad for the store’s myspace page when I worked for Ron a few years back. This “liquidation” is a sad conclusion for such an incredible place. The sale’s been extended Wed 7/30 thru Sat 8/2. Thank you Ron, Blessings to your Family. Rest In Peace Brother.
