Prepare to see less shelves of DVDs and CDs at your local Best Buy. In a recent piece from the LA Times, we’ve learned that the mega-retailer sees that the tide is turning for physical products down the line, and is beginning to look towards further supporting digital downloads and streaming services. This doesn’t mean Best Buy will be giving up on new DVD, Bluray, and CD releases—but expect to see less room for older and less popular films and music on store shelves.
Ryan Pirozzi, direct of Best Buy digital media, sums up their new outlook:
Digital is developing as an important channel, and our three-point strategy is to drive adoption of Internet-connectable devices, drive connection and drive consumption using our deep consumer relationships.
