Remember when you were younger, and you had to wait in those long lines for the newest CD? It used to be one of the most exciting, and frustrating things that you’d ever been through.
However, Best Buy is kicking off the end of an era, as CDs will no longer be sold at the big box store.
“Entertainment has been and continues to be an important part of Target’s brand,” the company said. “We are committed to working closely with our partners to bring the latest movies and music titles, along with exclusive content, to our guests. The changes we’re evaluating to our operating model, which shows a continued investment in our Entertainment business, reflect a broader shift in the industry and consumer behavior. We have nothing more to share at this time.”
This conversation is so odd to many, to all the people who remember getting a Walkman for Christmas and having it be the highlight of the year (that was me).
If you want to pick up the last little bit of the CDs, you can! However, once July 1st rolls around, the big ol’ big of disks will roll into the back, and never be seen again.
Oddly, Best Buy will still continue to sell vinyl.
