Electronics retailer Best Buy will pull CDs from its shelves come July 1, Billboard reports. Although Best Buy used to be a major music merchandiser in the U.S., CD sales have gradually declined as streaming becomes the preferred method of listening.
Vinyl is selling well at their store with album sales hitting a record high in 2017, accounting for 14% of all physical album sales. The article goes on to say that Target may soon follow Best Buy in pulling CD’s and even DVD’s. Target’s inventory on CD’s has dwindled to fewer than 100 titles in many stores.
So if you want to score on some discounted CD’s this spring, swing on into Best Buy. I’m sure a lot of albums will be on sale. What was the last CD you purchased?
