Has anyone noticed vinyl records on display at your local B&N store. They've been on display for several month here at my local B&N, but they don't seem to be selling - everything from Christmas is still there. Last night I went there and saw that they were all moved out to the center aisle facing the entrance (but placed behind the latest book releases) on display so everyone who walked straight in could see them - but they still don't seem to be selling. B&N even has cheap turn tables in a box on display, (close and play type for grown ups.. maybe) and they don't seem to be selling either. Anyway, what's going on? I thought analog was making a comeback!
My local BNs in the Boston area have increased the number of LPs by about 3X in the last few months. I'd say they are selling. Don't know who buys those whack TTs though. I read somewhere their latest financials were up, thanks in part to the LPs.
@ Tysons Corner in Virginia the Barnes and Noble is also selling very well. The last two times I went, they had more of a selection. I made some purchases the second time, along with many other people...skipped on the retro turntables though, also the portable ones too.
