Record Theatre Closing Last Location

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A staple for music-lovers in Western New York for four decades is closing its last remaining location. 

The Record Theatre store on Main and Lafayette in Buffalo will close by the end of August. 

The store manager says the original owner passed away and now everything has been put into a trust for the family.

Employees found out Monday and say it's out of their control.

"I've been going to this store since it opened up in the '70s," said customer John Stuhr. "Now I'm just really sad, it's the last of the big record stores in this area."

"Going to miss this place, because it's been more than a job. I have all of these people that work for me, I try to take care of them. Now we all have to go out there and figure out what we're going to to do next," manager Joe Igielinski said.

Igielinski says there will be a going out of business sale starting on June 19.
