UPDATE: I talked to Scott Shepard at Time Traveler today about the closing plans. He will start a liquidation sale on Jan. 2 (the store's closed on Jan. 1) with 20 percent off everything in stock, then keep that going until most/all of the current stock is gone. Might take a few months, but it depends on how quickly things move. After he closes this store, he is thinking about moving into a smaller place with a more specialized inventory, but that's not definite.
I have long been a fan of the Cuyahoga Falls CD/record store -- with its wide-ranging selection, friendly people and good stock of new and used recordings -- and was in there last week for my annual Christmas CD run. But they've been struggling for some time, and had a save-the-store sale earlier this year; the sale helped but things have apparently gone back in the doldrums. No sense of optimism when I stopped by, and while I found some interesting holiday items, the choices were holdovers from a year ago.
And now this on Facebook:
"Time Traveler: CD's, DVD's, And More sadly enough, is closing down in January. It's been a great ride! Thanks for everything, hope to see you before we lock up after the first of the year!"
Complete bummer. At least stop by to help give them a good send-off.
