CIMS To Shut Down ThinkIndie Digital Music Store
The Coalition of Independent Music Store's (CIMS) digital download outlet ThinkIndie.com sent an email to users that the site would be shut down.
The online store had been created to help CIMS' indie music retailers to capture a piece of the digital download income lost to iTunes and others and to create an online destination for fans of independent music.
"ThinkIndie will discontinue selling digital downloads as of February 15, 2011. Upon closure, we will delete all account and credit card information, " read the email. "Please use all outstanding credits before the closing date. All mp3s previously purchased from ThinkIndie will be unaffected by the closure."
"Thank you again for your patronage and we sincerely hope you will continue to support independent retail," the email concluded.
