Come July 1st, Best Buy won't be selling CDs anymore, and Target may also stop. http://www.businessinsider.com/best-buy-pulling-cds-from-stores-reaction-2018-2 I guess this had to happen sooner or later, and I actually find it kind of sad even though I haven't really bought a CD since 2009, and it actually was from a Best Buy. I haven't exactly shut the door to buying CDs, but I just haven't been compelled to buy a CD in so long. I have bought six CDs since then, but they were actually reissues of existing albums I already owned, and they either had a bonus DVD or extra tracks. So basically, 2014 was the last time I bought a CD. There are actually two more of those I'd like to get, but I can easily adapt to the ceasing of conventional CD production. Anyway, I guess I'd say my purchases of CDs have slowed since 2005, when I decided to end my BMG Music Service membership since I noticed I wasn't buying as many CDs. I had been buying music on cassettes up until 1996, which is when I decided to switch to CDs. There were so many of them I wanted to get, and I'd even replace my cassette albums with their CD counterparts. So a subscription to BMG helped me out with that, and saved me some money. I've also downloaded a lot of songs, but they were mostly older songs. So instead of buying all of those CDs to have those songs, I just gave downloading a go. Unfortunately, downloads were what started to slowly kill CD sales. There are people who have been getting rid of their CDs for downloads, but I'll be keeping mine. All 169 of them.
