A few weeks back, when I announced the closeout sale at Virgin Megastore at Ontario Mills, reader A.S. Ashley told me he went there, found nothin’ and returned home.
Yours truly, by contrast, was still finding stuff worth buying as late as this week. I must have lower standards. (Although until a few days ago, there were still copies of “Exile on Main Street” by the Rolling Stones, my choice of the best album of the rock era.)
Sunday’s column is about the closeout sales at Virgin (which is set to close Sunday) and Circuit City in Pomona, which closed a while back. And that prompts a meditation on both bargain-hunting and the demise of record stores.
