The sky is not falling. Parts of the facade above the entry at the downtown PDX store began falling onto the sidewalk last week...big concrete chunks. There is now a barrier basically around the ROCK (no pun intended) side entrance so you don't get bonked on the head. Please enter through the far west doors...the ones regulars know as the "VINYL" entrance, or the JAZZ & CLASSICAL. You can walk thru the inside passageway for now from there to get to the cd/rock side.
Sorry for the inconvenience. It should only be a couple of days. And look up.
