Record Stores: Out of Sight, Not Obsolete; New York Times, 9/30/09

Ben Sisario, New York Times; Record Stores: Out of Sight, Not Obsolete:

"To survive in a market in which most products are just a click away, the dealers serve micro-niches, catering to ever fewer but more discriminating customers. One Vinylmania shopper, Jusoong Sun, 47, said he preferred the tactile and social aspects of nonvirtual retail: “To me the whole experience of buying is coming here and feeling the record, putting on the turntable. It’s still tangible.”"
