...There is a thrift store that I stumbled across recently that prices their LPs at $0.25 each and their CDs at $1.00 each. I found that a little odd considering what I have read here about other stores. Oh well, the records are on the bottom shelf and relatively easy to search (I bought about thirty the first visit) as the album fronts face out but the CDs are on an upper shelf filed like books and are quite difficult to search; especially considering the small spine labels and tight spacing. The CDs are at or just below my eye level and cranking my head sideways to read the labels is not really comfortable. Maybe the next visit I will make an attempt. End of thoughts.
....they completely screw it up.
Back in the early 90s, I went to a thrift store in Manhattan that understood this problem. They would take about 1000 records, and put them out for $8 a record. Next week, $5. The week after, $2. Then bargain week, 4 for $1.
They would then throw out the remaining records, bring out another 1000, and start again at $8.
No work required. They supplied the records, and the customers supplied the knowledge.
That has always seemed like a wasteful practice to me. If they just priced them lower to begin with they would most likely sell more and not have to throw them out. They would probably make more money too.
