Happy Rex Manning Day

Twenty years ago, a little movie with mostly unknowns was released. It was Empire Records. It is the story of a mom and pop record store that is trying to stay open amongst the competition of the big  box music stores.

Flash forward to today, the fate of this fictional record store would have probably been the same as their real life counterparts. It seems that these days, there are less and less independently owned stores and more big box stores.

I will admit that I do shop at these stores. I do go into Target and K-mart when I need to. I have ordered music from Itunes and books from Amazon.

There was something about going into an independently owned niche store. Whether it was a record store or a book store, it was a magical experience. But times do change and businesses must change with the times. Even if that means changing the way we buy.

Happy Rex Manning Day!
