I, for one, was surprised when I walked into Best Buy in December (for clearly the first time in a while) and saw that they were still selling CDs. But there they were, and I thought, "hmm... wonder how long this will last."
Turns out, the answer is 2018. Best Buy announced they will stop selling CDs at their retail stores around July 1. Target is looking to trim CDs out of its shelves too.
And all of this, ironically, as vinyl sales are going back up! So when will 8-Tracks make a comeback??
