The Tower in North Beach was not the only Tower in the SF Bay Area.  There was a Tower in Los Altos (San Antonio Road and El Camino), one in Cambell (San Jose area) on Bascom Ave., and one in San Jose near the Oakridge Mall (Blossom Valley district).

Agreed - good riddance to the chain store.

I was of course referring to the days when the only Tower in the SF Bay Area
was "Columbus and Bay". They were very clever back then and made those giant
painted posters outside the building that usually indicated a new release or
a particular artist was on tour in The City. The Jazz section of that store
was gigantic and the dept. manager took a lot of chances and carried nearly
everything, and had no fear of imports. No other record store had the Jazz
section that Tower did.
