In my opinion, Walmart now has one of the better brick & mortar CD selections of the national big-box stores (WM, BB, Target, Barnes & Noble). That's a reflection of how far the category has fallen. I guess what bugs me most is how these stores shrink their CD sections to almost nothing and then complain about how CD sales continue to plummet. :think:

FYE still has an ok (I did say "ok", not "great") selection, but other than sale items they're not competitive price wise.

Brick and mortar stores are largely irrelevant to me for retail purchases. Why would I go to Best Buy when I can browse Amazon at home, actually hear samples of songs from the CDs I'm perusing, and order immediately, without getting dressed? :) Now I like a good old fashioned non-chain record store, and I pop in our local shop every now and then to browse for more obscure stuff or just to satisfy the urge to wander amongst actual physical things I can flip through. But the chains and big box stores are out, for me.

The Walmart closest to me actually has a slightly better selection than the Best Buy.

Everybody else may have hated it, but Pink Uncle Floyd and Jethro was my favorite TV show of the 1980s. :yay:

I'm currently visiting a state with no sales tax, and am telling myself that this is where I finally need to go to Walmart with about fifty bucks or so and load up on all of the old albums that I was never compelled to purchase at full price--for $5 each. Mostly stuff like the Doors, KISS, Aerosmith, AC/DC, etc.

Good idea.

Stopped in the local Best Buy today to pick up a gift card for a relative and noticed most of their catalog CD's had new price stickers covering the old ones. At least on the budget CD's it looked like they had gone up by a dollar, and I suspect the other titles have similar increases. If they haven't already driven CD buyers away with their paltry selection, this should do it for sure.

I am starting to wonder if there is some sort of pricing collusion going on; including at minimum the USA labels, Walmart, Best Buy & Super D.

If I'm right, I suspect Amazon would eventually file a law suit against whoever the offenders are.
