Report: Starbucks cutting back on CD sales

From Silicon Alley Insider:

“We hear that by September, the chain will have dumped almost all of its in-store music retail offerings.”

Although the chain is scaling back on its media offerings in its stores, it will still offer a selection of four CDs and offer free wireless access to iTunes, the report said.

UPDATE: The report was off a bit. Starbucks told Melissa Allison here – in a story with a named source, on the record – that the iTunes items are just moving elsewhere in the store. They are getting rid of the rotating CD racks.

The most interesting tidbit is that a handful of employees here and in Los Angeles choose the CDs. I wonder if the team in each city gets to pick two of the discs that will be sold by cash registers.
