Best Buy pulling CDs off shelves
 

 
Best Buy, formerly one of the biggest music merchandisers in the US, has plans to pull CDs from all of its stores by July 1, according to Billboard.

Target could be the next retailer to do so, as Billboard further reported that it was demanding that music suppliers sell the retailer inventory on a consignment basis and pay for unsold inventory. One music manufacturer is leaning toward saying no to this deal, according to Billboard.

This should come as no big surprise between streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify taking over and vinyl returning to popularity, there doesn't seem to be much of a place for CDs anymore. More than 800 million CDs were sold in the US in 2001, but that number fell to 89 million in 2017, according to Consequence of Sound.

Best Buy declined to comment on the Billboard report.

Even though CD sales have been dropping rapidly for years, people seem to be shocked and upset with Best Buy's decision to pull them from its shelves.

I still use my 120gig ipod i tried uploading my playlists to spotify and it fu*ked all my sh*t up with different versions of songs and a sh*tload of 90's rap and R&B that doesnt even get recognised. Even uploaded to google music and the playlist system is so sh*t it needs a lot of work. i just went out and bought a 128gb sd card i need something that works and syncs like itunes but works on android.

I'm actually cool with vinyl replacing CDs.....there's simply no need for a digital physical format anymore. End of an era

Who would've thought that vinyl would end up outlasting CDs

Why are people so into vinyl these days? All the new sh*t is digital to vinyl, and for the old sh*t they don't have access to the analog material for their source. It defeats the entire purpose.
