Opinion | The Pain of Losing a Local Record Store - The New York Times

Sure makes sense to me.

But experience has taught me that this cold logic is far from airtight. Our emotional connection to stores, restaurants and other commercial spots whose loss we mourn has nothing to do with economics. These businesses give us the most pleasure because of their irrational exuberance, their daily chutzpah, which is what’s so humanizing about them.
