Okay, I read the article and it is still unclear what they mean by Record Store. Do they mean a general music store, like Tower Records or Sam Goody, which sells CDs, tapes and other stuff. Or do they actually mean a shop that specializes in vinyl to the small niche of people that still use phonograph players.

The social implications of the "demise of the record store" are completely different depending on which one they mean. I have read this article and cannot definitively tell which one it is (they often refer to some places that I have heard of and are known to carry CDs and DVDs, but the reference vinyl repeatedly throughout the article). That is a sign of poor writing.
