    I was told it closed permanently. I wish they would reopen but someone told me they took the signage down. :(

    I don't buy vinyl. I primarily use eBay. Recently I've been using the record store but their selection is limited. I looked at Bullmoose and Music Direct and their selections were limited. I'll have to look into Acoustic Sounds.

    As far as the ads here they leave them up till I guess the end of time. I do see that some have listed them as ended. I contacted a couple different sellers and they never responded. So I'm not going to bother with sellers here. There are sellers on eBay that's advertised best offer and if they don't respond to me I don't buy their CDs either. I did buy one CD from Discogs and I may start buying from them more.

    They had a lot of strip mall locations. Maybe those won't come back, but some of their stores still are on-line on Amazon.

    I went on their Facebook page and a former employee complained that the management said not to worry we will support you and your jobs and benefits are secured. They said about a month later out of the blue 2000 employees were sent a mass email and summarily laid off.

    Shame that such a descent company will cut and run or cutback so much that it will become a shadow of it's former self.

    Guess that's just the way things are going these days.

    My whole industry shut down in March. Concerts/events. I work 9 venues, all are closed.

    Amazon Aus is a great for buying vinyl ...especially when they have specials. I buy a ton of vinyl from them. I also like the fact that if there's anything wrong with it - so simple to exchange or get refunded. I also find Vinyl Destination a great place to buy vinyl within Australia as well as Discrepency Vinyl; though DV are more expensive - service and packaging is A1.

    I'm not a vinyl guy so Amazon hasn't been a good hunting ground for me. The CD prices on Amazon are kind of stupid for both Amazon stock and third party sellers. I stopped checking Amazon last year because of it.

    Amazon has been going downhill for years. Their charges on third party sellers are ridiculous (would make £3 on an £8 CD). Only good as far as specials offers go.
