Drove to BEST BUY in MANTECA, didnt have it. I asked dude working and he went to the computer and said there were 2 copys at the STOCKTON store, so I had him call to put it on hold, they couldnt find it. Meanwhile, Im calling FYE in Modesto on my phone, They have it so I ask them to hold it.Now I drive to MODESTO MALL after driving to MANTECA BEST BUY and there it is…PACKAGED WITH KLUSTERFUK.
SHIT IS AMAZING, AWSOME ALBUM.
Never had such a hard time finding an an album so close to release date, but I found it, and its worth it.
Yeah, something happened with this distribution on this album as far as Best Buy goes. I guess the thing people (Strage included?) don’t realize is that less and less stores are ordering CD’s. I worked at Best Buy for 2 years. Shortly after I left, they decreased their CD department by 75%. I went there on release day to pick up the CD…they had 0 copies. They looked on their computer and out of the 8 closest Best Buys…one of them 150 – 200 miles away only got 1 copy in. That was it.
Then I went to K-Mart. They had it on sale for $11.99 – but guess what, they don’t stock CD’s anymore either. 3 local K-Marts…only 1 of them still carries CD’s, and they didn’t have it in stock.
FYE – THE PLACE TO GO…that’s where I got my copy for $12.99…but GUESS WHAT!
I walked in there yesterday and that shit’s going out of bussiness…FIGURES.
Yea, FYE is where I USUALLY go, but, I tried BEST BUY because STRANGE ADMIN. was hyping KLUSTERFUK was packaged with it. But, it seems to be hard to find a BEST BUY that carries it, and, it was packaged together at FYE anyway.
Strange Music should stop working with Best Buy, FYE etc they never order any of Strange Music’s products let alone cd’s at least the Best Buy’s and FYE’s here in Texas. I would just sale the music off the strange music website like they do and cut out the major music chain stores.
To bad none of my stores in Atlanta had the CD either. Everytime I check online for a CD it says unavailable for almost every store. I had to buy the shit off Itunes, so I could feel like I actually supported the artist. Pisses me off.
