Seriously, Bleeker Bob's, a long running and quite well-known record shop in NYC, is slated to close down. FUCKING WEAK.

...Bleecker Bob’s, which will close its store at 118 West Third Street at the end of April, will become a Starbucks, according to a manager, Chris Wiedener.

One less independent record store, one with years of history...gone. Sad news. Condolences NYC/East Coast record nerds. Enjoy your coffee stand, hopefully they'll have free wi-fi so you can download some music.
