While Walmart reduces their music CD sales areas, they are going to increase other forms of physical media.

According to Home Media Magazine, Walmart suffered a 23% drop in music CD sales in the first four weeks of the fourth quarter of this year. To combat this drop, the gigantic retailer is going to reduce the presence of music in select stores, while moderately increasing the selection of DVDs, including Blu-ray.  In stores where they plan to reduce all physical media, they will be increasing their selection of electronics.

It is unclear what exactly Walmart’s position is on physical media at this point, but with Circuit City closing 155 of their stores, it is not looking good for the future of things on shiny discs.
