Best Buy promise “substantial” music departments

By | Published on Thursday 22 April 2010

US electronics retail giant Best Buy have confirmed they will be selling music in their UK stores which are due to open this summer, the first in Thurrock at the end of the month.

It’s not entirely clear what kinds of music products will be on sale – ie albums, singles, devices, downloads – but a spokesman told Music Week that their British stores will have a “substantial music section”. Presumably those music departments will, in some way, try to flog subscriptions to Napster, the digital music service Best Buy have owned since 2008.
