It's also interesting that they do not mention any specific valuable records in 
the article.

It is interesting that both these postings and the article and TV piece all 
refer to the stock of a retail store as a "collection".  Over on the 78-L there 
have been comments from several who have been customers and know this shop well 
that the prices he asked were too high, and even the reduced price he is now 
asking for the whole stock is still too high considering that it has been pawed 
thru by thousands of collectors for 50 years.  I suppose that if your prices are 
too high, a store's "stock" becomes a "collection"!
