The once commonplace digital music format is getting hammered in the U.S.
CD sales were down 18.5 percent last year, and some experts pin Best Buy’s CD receipts to just $40 million annually.
In an interesting twist, the store is committed to carrying records for the next two years. The vinyl format has been enjoying a resurgence lately.
You’re also likely to see fewer CDs at Target stores in the coming months.
Executives are reportedly insisting they will only pay music companies for the discs they sell them instead of paying upfront for inventory.
