The reason for Timbuktunes shutting down is an economic one. I don't know if you heard this, but record sales are apparently down (I had no idea!), and running a specialty shop such as Timbuktunes became increasingly difficult. For the months of November and December, the store will be having a liquidation sale of its remaining merchandise. Right now, stock is 15% off and the prices will continue to go down after Thanksgiving, so it'll be a good spot to buy that Christmas gift for your dearest fan of international folk music. Timbuktunes is located at 4726 SE Hawthorne.
