Hal March did the smartest thing a small store can do and that is specialize in something other than trying to carry the hits or whatever was listed on the Billboard charts. If White Knight had done the same thing as Toonerville, perhaps the future wouldn't be so grim for Mr. White. He sounds like a nice guy, but you've got to change with the times and can't continue to conduct a business such as his in 2008 as you did in 1988. Downloading is horrible but unless you're stocking something people are buying (vinyl-new not used), merchandise (shirts, new posters etc.), the kids of today won't understand what kind of store you're running and the jazz and classical fans will stay away. Use different distributors and buy direct from labels, stop using over-priced one-stop distributors, their prices stink and are WAY too high now.
It's too bad he's going the way of the dinosaur when all is said and done. It makes me hate the stores that continuously sell music below wholesale just to get you in the door (Best Buy).
