LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — When was the last time you wanted to buy a CD? Because you probably can’t remember, Best Buy has reportedly stopped selling them.
The big box electronics retailer officially stopped selling music CDs Sunday, according to Billboard. Sales fell in recent years as music streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music gained in popularity.READ MORE: The Cosmopolitan In Las Vegas To Pay $1 Million In Cash Bonuses If 80% Of Workers Get Vaccinated

CDs, of course, usurped cassette tapes in popularity in the late 80s.

Vinyl is an entirely different story, however. Best Buy will continue to sell vinyl records for another two years, thanks to sales at a 27-year high.
