Music Retailers Offer Exclusives

december 29, 2003  08:58 am
Serious record collectors generally do not flip through the CD's and DVD's at Wal-Mart, Best Buy or Target. The music departments in those stores are mainly known for offering a narrow selection of chart toppers. But increasingly mass merchandisers and electronics retailers have become the place to go for music that cannot be found anywhere else. That is because many big name artists with new releases to promote, do not just turn to their labels, they also strike exclusive deals with major retailers.
