Tower Records is a retail music chain based in West Sacramento, California. Tower was founded in 1960 by Russ Solomon in Sacramento, California. The store was named after a nearby movie theatre. Seven years later, he opened his first store in San Francisco, in what was originally a grocery store at Bay and Columbus streets. The chain eventually expanded internationally and now includes stores in England, Israel, Colombia, Scotland, and the United Arab Emirates. The store also established Tower Records stores in Japan, but those stores split off from main chain and are now independent.
