I've been (understandably) distracted lately, so I am not quite sure when they closed this particular branch of Newbury Comics, but I was crestfallen when I discovered its fate over the weekend. It could not have happened that long ago; I was thinking, perhaps November 30th.
I have tried to keep out b/c I didn't want to put myself in the face of temptation, but I know I saw the sign from the corner of my eye driving by not long ago. I ordered on Amazon recently, as NC does not have everything I want by a long shot, but still ...
I thought I was in the wrong place on the sidewalk. But alas, I saw the "20%" off signs, an empty, dark space, and a small sign on the door that had a list of the locations that are close by.
BUT those locations are NOT THE SAME. Alewife had great pre-owned CDs, the staff was laid back, but always helpful, and the store had a great throw-back feel to it (read: dirty and grungy); a great place to browse the bins.
Been going to this location for years (including the original location that was across the street), and am so sad about this. Sign of the times, I suppose, but a shocker.
Anyone miss this location, or any other similar hangout?
