Best Buy Cutting Back on DVDs and CDs

Posted Thu Sep 30, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The company will be clearing space for consumer electronics and videogames this holiday season.

It looks like Best Buy is making some changes this holiday season. The electronics giant is going to be cutting back on the shelf space allotted for CDs and DVDs to make room for tablet PCs, videogames and netbooks.

Before you get too excited though, it sounds like CDs are going to be getting the worst of it. "This will be enabled by our reorganization of the DVD and CD sections," says CEO Brian Dunn. "The CD section in particular will shrink in space allotment."

The article in Daily Finance where Dunn was quoted made no mention at all of Blu-ray discs, which may or may not be considered a part of Best Buy's DVD section. Either way, look for a slimmed down section this holiday season.
