According to a report on CNET, music retailer Musicland Stores today mentioned
that they are taking a close look at the ever growing online shopping
opportunities. After the disclosure of the company’s plans to launch a series
of online stores later in 1999, the company’s stock immediately surged
higher as a response.
Initially, the sites will offer a full line of music, VHS video, and DVDs
complemented by selected licensed apparel, portable electronics, accessories,
trend merchandise, sheet music and music books, entertainment books, video
games, and entertainment software. Pretty much everything you can also buy in
Musicland’s traditional “real world” stores.
