PostSubject: FYE Dropping Prices?   Sun Aug 02, 2009 8:02 pm

I went to the mall yesturday and since I haven't been into a music store, I would have to say in atleast a month or two I had to go to FYE. Also seeing the sign that said ALL SINGLE CD'S $9.99! I picked up a few things. The price wasn't that big of a deal because there is a mom and pop shop that I go to where everything is $9.99 as well but I was able to get a few things he didnt have which again was surprising for FYE.

I picked up The Clan Destined, which wasnt on sale because it came with a dvd but Ive been looking for that for a while now so I grabbed it. Also got Iron Maiden Number Of The Beast remaster to complete my remaster collection. I could never see spending $20 on something I already had to just complete a collection and lastly I got Queen Rocks Montreal which was a double cd but for some reason was $9.99 so I grabbed it before they caught the mistake.

So what does this mean? I have no idea. My gf asked if they were going out of business and the guy said that the FYE was a test store. I hope the test works because I think sales will definetly go up if prices stay this way. Because if you think about it, you pay around $10 for mp3's which are obviously a lower quality than cds and what do you get? just music. You pay $10 for a cd you an actual item.

I know this day and age people dont really care about owning cds but maybe this will help cd sales. I know I would have bought a lot more back when I had a much larger want list if this would have happened sooner.

So does anyone else have an FYE thats doing this as well?

There are 3 FYEs in my general vacinity at home. There were 2 closer to work that have closed up shop. I'll have to take a look and see. I hope you're right, Wayne. It's about time they got with the program. Charging $18.99 for a cd in this day & age is just stupid.

I haven't been to an FYE store in ages (there aren't any within a convenient distance) but if this pricing plan of theirs takes off, maybe some of the few other CD retailers that are left will take notice and follow their lead.

I was at FYE yesterday and did not notice the price changes since I went straight to the used racks, but I do think people will buy CD's if they are cheaper, even in this day and age.

At my last job there was an FYE not far from the building where I worked and I spent many a lunch break running over there for a quick root thru the used racks. I miss that. Sad

I used to do that too until they closed up. Sad That's where I picked up Helloween's The Dark Ride. I used to find some great stuff in those stores because they were in more "urban" locations. Nobody was looking for metal in those stores. Probably why they closed 'em too.

Thats the thing though, it might not be in ever FYE mine is luckily a "Tester" store supposedly. I have to check out this other one thats close to my house. Not buying any new cds lately, I havent had a reason to step in the store yet.

I was in Asheville NC for the Dream Theater show and walked into the local FYE and they had that $9.99 pricing as well...

They should lower their prices.

Ex.: Primal Fear - Metal is Forever (2 CD) at FYE $20.99
Primal Fear - Metal is Forever (2 CD) at Newbury Comics $12.99

That would be the only reason for me to shop there again.

I only buy at FYE if it's used or something I can't find anywhere else and that doesn't happen much.

FYE has always been so overpriced, I never bought from them because of it, if they went out of business it is one story that I would not feel bad over. Personally think they robbed people for to many years already.

I've always found FYE to be okay on the used stuff (though going through it in the racks is a pain) but almost never buy anything new. If this price point takes hold I'll be going there more frequently and buying much more.

I did notice that at secondspin's store, which is owned by the same company, that new prices have come down a few dollars. Most were in the 11.99 range.

Hopefully they all go down in their prices. It has been a long time coming for something like this and I think this is the best time to be doing it. The economy is crap, the music industry is dying this im hoping will be a good thing and stick for a long time to come.

I made a quick pit-stop in my local FYE tonight. They had signs all over the place "All CDs $9.99 or lower". The usual exceptions apply of course (no double cds, etc.). I went in about 15 minutes before they were ready to close up shop, so I didn't have much time to browse. I did ask a clerk if they were going out of business and she said "Not that I know of". I asked how long is this sale and she replied "It's going on indefinately. They are testing it in a few stores and judging on the results, it may become the standard price. We're trying to stay competetitive". Good news for us consumers I suppose. I'd actually shop there now. I'll go back this week when I have more time to look around for some deals.

I also saw a sign posted that read "Pre-order any new release and get it for $6.99 on day of arrival". That's pretty decent.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if they went out of business in the next few years.

wow 6.99? I might just have to go back and find out more about that one.
