Turning the Tables

Yesterday's New York Post ran a brief story on Best Buy's decision to stock vinyl LPs.
The consumer-electronics giant, which happens also to be the third-largest music seller behind Apple's iTunes and Wal-Mart, is considering devoting eight square feet of merchandising space in all of its 1,020 stores solely to vinyl, which would equate to just under 200 albums, after a test in 100 of its stores around the country proved successful.
Not bad, considering that a typical Best Buy carries just between 16-20 square feet of music merchandise.
