“Just because Pandora recommends something doesn’t mean it’s cool,” Glenn Peoples, senior editorial analyst at Billboard, said. “To know what’s cool and what people are excited about, you’ve got to go to a record store.”

The store does not have a definite closing date, but once the inventory goes, so goes the shop.
