The Final Weekend for Owensboro’s Book & Music Exchange
Well, this it. The end of era happens this weekend here in Owensboro. The Book & Music Exchange will officially close its doors for good on Sunday, February 23rd. Over the last few weeks, the store has been liquidating its entire inventory with a 75% off sale storewide.
I work out at Edge and have seen many people walking out of the store with bags and boxes full of great deals.
I will admit. I haven't shopped at Book & Music Exchange for a couple of years. The digital era has pretty much eliminated my need to have hard copies of music. However, the last time I visited the store, I purchased something I will never forget.
I found an old Debby Boone album with the song "You Light Up My Life" on it. That was my elementary school principal, Mr. Pendley's, favorite song. I bought that album simply because of him. And, when Mr. Pendley passed away in March of 2018, I sent that album to Welborn Florist and they created an amazing flower arrangement around it. It's what I sent to the funeral home to honor him.
That's my absolute fondest memory of Book & Music Exchange. Do you have one?
