Reader Jayson Cote wrote in and said:
“Tower Records is selling off all inventory at 25% off. They have almost every Wii game in stock for 25% off…I just bought WarioWare and Excite Truck for $37.49 each!”
Tower, which owes creditors about $200 million, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in August. In its filing, Tower said it has been hurt by an industry-wide decline in music sales, the trend toward downloading online music rather than buying CDs and competition from discount stores such as Wal-Mart.
Bad for Tower, good for Wii game buyers.
