Cd Prices

Why is it that record companies cop all the crap for cd prices and industry woes when ultimately it's the retail outlets that determine the end price and availability?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Record companies set the wholesale price. They do deals with major chains to cut prices at times. The markup is only about 30% not a huge margin in retail terms. Some stores sell CD's at no profit to get customers in the store. Smaller retailers are going out of business because of undercutting. Usually smaller stores have more knowledge about the music and are in touch with the grass roots.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
