    CDs are showing up at many dollar tree stores. Ymmv. They seem to be mainly from the concord family of labels. I got 19 th holes a 2 CD jazz compilation, the Hudson project ( Abercrombie, mintzer,erskine and patitucci), a lady smith black mambazo, James Barnes 3030 hindsight-2 CD,an ozomatli, JP and Chrissie hyndes, and a telarc classic Brahms requiem. There were some soundtracks too.

    the cut-out bins used to be wonderful places, this is good news.

    You got my attention! I'm a sucker for a $1 CD.

    Here in the Los Angeles area, I went to both my nearby Dollar Tree's. Neither one had CD's, but both had stacks of merchandise in cardboard boxes that have yet to be put onto the floor. I live in one of the areas where finding employees is tough - both stores seemed understaffed, and the aisles were messy and low on stock.

    One employee told me that when they get blu-rays, typically one or two customers will come in and buy the entire inventory at once. He thinks that could happen with CD's, he's not sure.

    Anyway, there's a 2-minute video on YouTube from someone reporting the same thing from his local Dollar Tree Store. The stock he shows is not Concord-label-style but mostly 2000 - 2010 rock and rap. His video is here: .

    Although I saw a Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and that's a Requiem in the front of one of the rows.

    Man, that is one TERRIBLE video. Let someone who actually has a clue do that video.

    What department/section of the store are they usually found? (I realize every store might be different.)

    I was in a Dollar Tree last weekend, and while they had a section with books (plenty of $1 Bibles...!), I didn't see any CDs, Blu-Rays, etc.

    I used to see Ozomatli at their weekly gig at The Dragonfly (same place where the Chili Peppers got their start) 25 years ago. Good times.

    Thanks! I only gave the briefest glance down that aisle, and since I wasn't looking to buy any $1 earbuds or USB cables, I moved on. I will take a closer look there in the future!

    They sometimes rarely have eagle rock DVDs. I recently got queen making a night at the opera DVD there.

    Man, a lot of the WEA stuff is stuff we had a heard time giving away to accounts. Oh well. Somebody found a way to clear the pallets in the warehouse.

    Thanks for sharing, I drive by them all the time.. and sometimes go in. I have small kids, and you can't beat the price for art supplies. Crayola stuff too, not even off-brand.

    I have been to four Dollar Tree stores in Southern California this week (every time I pass one, I check in). None have any CDs.

    I stopped at my local Dollar Tree yesterday - they had two boxes of CDs, maybe 100 in total. Odd assortment, but I picked up three discs:

    Nickel Creek - Why Should The Fire Die?
    The Jayhawks - Mockingbird Time
    The Chieftans/Ry Cooder - San Patricio (Deluxe CD/DVD edition)
     
  17. I have yet to see these CDs on the East Coast.

    I can confirm they are on the east coast. I picked up a Ben Webster - Centennial Celebration in Phillipsburg, NJ last weekend. I have been to two of my local Manhattan Dollar Tree stores which had nothing.

    The NJ store had maybe 60-70 CD's. Far more DVD's than CD's. Nothing much to my taste. But hey, one dollar!

    We have a brand new Dollar Tree nearby, and I've been tempted to stop in to check for CDs. Then I remember the one CD that I bought in a DT probably 12 years ago... Bjork's Volta, which I still haven't opened.

    Or the mis-named "99 Cents Only" store.
