The Rise and Fall of Tower Records

For years, the yellow and red Tower Records logo was familiar to music lovers around the world. What started as an annex to a family drug store in Sacramento spread to 30 countries on five continents. Its iconic store was on the Sunset Strip. In 1999, Tower had sales of over $1 billion. Just seven years later, it filed for bankruptcy.
