Tesco staff are being advised that CDs and DVDs are being removed from the supermarket’s stores over the coming month or two: more here.
A huge thanks to the Tesco insider who’s sent us documentation that reveals the supermarket chain is to be removing CDs and DVDs from its shelves.
An internal communication sent to stores states that “we will be reducing the general merchandise entertainment, electrical and toy rangers”, specifically including “removal of CDs and DVDs”.
We understand that over the coming weeks, stock will be reduced – a process that has already started – and by the week commencing 28th of February the stores will have removed physical movie media altogether.
This follows the news that Sainsbury’s has done the same, as we reported here.
Whether Tesco will retain any space for big releases remains to be seen. But it seems clear its commitment to physical media is to be heavily reduced, possibly even fully removed, in 2022.
Thanks again to the person who sent us this information.
