Does the future hold a resurgence for independent music stores?

Yes it does says Kenny Love in Indie Music Stores: Resurgence. Basically he is arguing that in the future a new breed of record store owner will emerge with the mantra of “quality over quantity.” I am not sure if I completely agree with the way he backs up his argument but at the same time I think that the future of indie record stores, although tough, will continue to thrive if not grow due to public demand for various music “niches.” We shall see soon enough.
Later.
