That's true - my local B&N has quire a section.
But, except for some new releases, B&N charges full retail for most of it's music.
yeah - prices have never been good there.
After twenty years, the Barnes & Noble near me just closed last month. They always had a pretty big music section and I bought a few albums there over the years (as recently as a couple years ago), but they priced CDs way too high. Between $15-$20 'til the day they closed. As soon as digital started gaining market-share CDs at retail everywhere should've dropped to $10, or below - yet they really didn't.
Actually, that's one of the things that kept me shopping for CDs on Amazon up until very recently - you could (and still can) get brand new CDs on Amazon for under $10. Less than a legit album download on iTunes.
In the last year I've just about switched entirely to downloading new albums from 7digital.
Best Buy stopped selling CD's here in Canada years ago. It has never once stopped me from continuing to buy the ones I want, although I buy mostly records these days.
Best Buy is like tomb dead in there.. and boring..
Not the same.. as they were years ago no more best buy exclusives...
I guess the upcoming Myles Kennedy release might be the final Best Buy exclusive.
Actually I just looked and they have an exclusive on the new Stone Temple Pilots CD the week after Myles Kennedy.
They're in the appliance business, which will probably pick up as soon as Sears finally snuffs it. Computers and printers as well.
Best Buy tried carrying vinyl about ten years ago. It didn't work out well for them. I think Barnes and Nobel has a better selection than BB ever did. The only record I remember buying from them was the Police reunion album.
