Signs of the Times


What Happened?!?

Contrary to what you may have heard, and the stores appearance, we are open for business. Here's what happened:

Due to several factors, including theft and music piracy, sales have declined nearly 70% in the last two years. As result, the powers that be decided to close the store. The inventory was osld off to a broker in Texas (don't worry, you didn't miss some giant blow out sale), and the building was to be leased to someone else. Unfortunately, the individual that was going to take over the lease backed out at the last minute. Since we now still have to pay rent on the building, it was decided to reopen, albeit on a smaller scale.

With that said, the only change we will undergo, aside from the look of the store, is that we will no longer stock most new CD's and DVD's. We will, however, have the newest releases availble each Tuesday, but they will only be available for a few weeks. We will continue to buy and sell used CD's, DVD's, and video games as we always have. We will still be able to order new CD's and DVD's, or find them used at other stores for you if you'd like. We have even added a machine that will let you burn whoel CD's, or even just the trackss you want, at 99 cents each. As always, anything you purchase at CD Warehouse is 100% guaranteed to play like new, or we'll replace it for you.

Thank you for your continued support
during this transition.
