Best Buy reintroduce vinyl to their stores

Business News Retail

US electronics retailer Best Buy, who also stock CDs and DVDs, are reportedly planning on setting aside eight square feet in 1000 of its stores to introduce a vinyl department. The retail giant has reportedly piloted selling good old fashioned records in 100 of its stores, and saw enough sales to justify reintroducing the format across its chain. Another sign that vinyl will outlive the CD as a physical music format me thinks. As previously reported, Best Buy, who now own half of the Carphone Warehouse retail chain, are looking into launching branches of their consumer electronic and home entertainment stores here in the UK.
