KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – A long time West Knoxville institution has officially closed its doors.
Cats Music and DVDs on Kingston Pike is a family owned chain that had seven stores spread out between Tennessee, Virginia and South Carolina.
The official announce came in the form of a handwritten note left on the front door. The note thanked customers for visiting for more than 35 years. It also blamed the store’s closing on several factors including the economy, rampant illegal downloads and competition from big-box stores.
The Cats Music in Chattanooga closed back in the spring.
