How Was "Tower Records" Named?
Tower Records is a retail music chain based in West Sacramento, California. Tower was founded in 1960 by Russ Solomon in Sacramento, California. The store was named after his father's drugstore (which shared a building with the Tower Theater, hence the name), where he first started selling records. Seven years later, Tower Records expanded to San Francisco, opening a store in what was originally existed as a grocery store at Bay and Columbus streets. The chain eventually expanded internationally and now includes stores in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Republic of Ireland, Israel, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico.
