Newbury Comics

Coolfer reports hard times over at Newbury Comics. I hate when I see smaller stores failing like that. Newbury Comics is a nice, relatively cheap on-line music store. They have a good indie selection and their turnaround time is pretty impressive. I use them quite a bit. It would suck if they disappeared. I'm still lamenting the loss of several of my local brick-and-mortar stores. I'd hate to lose one of my favorite on-line stores too.

Of course, I have to admit that I went to my local Tower just yesterday and bought a handful of CDs. But after reading the blurb at Coolfer this morning, my conscience got the better of me and I ordered a few things from Newbury....including something I wasn't able to find at Tower. I guess I should have just gone to Newbury first. My bad.

Update: Wow - Turns out they're not so small afterall, with 25 or so stores. Oh well...They still serve me well.

I usually avoid Tower because their prices always seem higher than most outlets. But their selection is deeper than most. Record and Tape Traders needs to get closer to DC outlets...
Heh - I worked for Newbury Comics for a few years. I'll shut up now about what I think of that soundbite...

I did buy the new DCFC there yesterday though.
hmmm...I guess they're a lot bigger than I thought. I imagined them being a small-time operation. Looks like I was wrong. Oh well.
I usually go to Tower simply because it's close to where I work. If you stick to buying things that are on sale, their pricing isn't too bad. If it's not on sale though - forget it.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! Oh yeah!
