Report: Starbucks to Pull CD Floor Racks
Seattle Starbucks plans to remove its rotating CD racks from the floors of 6,500 stores in the U.S. and Canada by September, according to the Seattle Times.
The coffee chain will instead focus on four CDs for sale near cash registers.
"It's an opportunity to focus on a small number of titles and tell those stories well," said Doug Cavarocchi, a Starbucks spokesman.
The company slashed its music and entertainment division this spring, ousting entertainment chief Ken Lombard and moving day-to-day management of its joint venture Hear Music record label to Concord Music Group, the report said.
