So much so that according to a report from Billboard, retailers in the United States are looking to phase out the sales of CDs.

Streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify have caused CD sales to plummet in recent years.
The spokesperson continued by saying the company was evaluating its operating model reflecting its continued investment in its Entertainment business. Apparently those numbers just aren't enough to justify the price of stock and the shelf space needed to keep CDs in stores.
