Lou's Records can't afford to even keep their own Top 20 rack stocked. I heard the record labels are clamping down on terms and even demanding C.O.D. these days. That's tough.
It's no secret the internet has destroyed many mom & pop record stores, now the recession has added to that burden. Imagine for a minute what Leucadia would be like without Lou's Records. It sends chills up my spine.
So here is my idea, everyone go to Lou's this month and buy a t-shirt.
Why a t-shirt? Well, A. since it's their own product it's probably one of the best margins in their whole store. B. it's cool to wear t-shirts that represent your local community.
(oh, and if anyone from Lou's reads this, you guys should really add your t-shirts to your online store. There are lots of proud Leucadians spread across the country who would order them because they miss you and Leucadia).
