J&R Auction Starts Tuesday
When New York’s J&R Music and Computer World announced earlier this year that it was shutting its door, the company announced that it hopes to find a partner to reopen as part of a new retail concept in 2015.
That may still happen, but in the meantime, the company has (per Internet Retailer) shuttered its e-commerce operation, and will hold a two-day auction of its existing inventory starting Tuesday. The auction, conducted through ASM Auctioneers, Inc., can be found here.
Meanwhile, according to Billboard magazine, J&R co-owner Rachelle Friedman has resigned the chairmanship of the Music Business Association.
