When Tower opened in Toronto, I was ecstatic, and spent a fair amount of time and (not equal, though it seemed like it) money there. They closed, and Sam the Record Man shut down not long after it, eliminating most music fans' hope of finding non-Top 100 music.

The irony of the labels stopping shipments to Tower as "technology has led to declining sales" is astounding.

The irony of the labels stopping shipments to Tower as "technology has led to declining sales" is astounding.

The article seems to be saying that they stopped shipments after Tower stopped paying, even thought the labels have been extending it credit for a while. Seems logical enough to me.

More generally, I guess the reasoning is "what's the point of sending them CDs they aren't going to sell?"
