“Through the years, Louisville’s earX-tacy has been a notable exception as the retail music business has been transformed, a local success story that’s fought the good fight against the Walmarts of the world and survived the changes in the music business as it has gone from vinyl to cassette to CD to MP3 downloads.
But now there’s trouble afoot for John Timmons’ store…”
“We’ve all shown that we support ear X-tacy and don’t want to see it go down, so let’s actually do something about it! The week of March 1st-5th, make a conscious effort to visit the store and buy at least ONE PIECE of merchandise! It can be a CD, DVD, vinyl, t-shirt… anything!
This is not just a matter of loving the store anymore, it’s a matter of shopping locally and keeping our independent businesses and economy alive. Don’t let chains take over! If we keep our money in the community, it stays in the community and further benefits the development of our city as a whole.
And while you’re there, stop by another local business and show support!
If you can’t make it to the store, order something online:
Upon stepping out of the shower, I decided that what today needs is a great playlist.
It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we’re living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials, and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.”
Well, I’m not going to leave you alone.
