    詳細內文:

    Reports coming in from independent music retailers point to strong Black Friday and Black Friday weekend sales despite ongoing shipments problems from the major record labels.
    Black Friday
    Retail members of the Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) are reporting an average sales increase of 12% for this year’s Black Friday over 2018. Individual reports ranged from a low of -26% to a high of +66%, with only three stores reporting minus numbers and those appeared to have external issues like weather problems
    Small Business Saturday
    Small Business Saturday sales, which have been growing steadily over the last three years, were up an average of 9%. The range here was a low of -22% to a high of +65%. The overall weekend numbers looked good, with a 7% average increase and a range of -22% to a high of +24%.
    Ongoing Distribution Problems
    “When I asked about issues affecting sales this year, I really got an earful, which I fully expected given the current status of retail music distribution,” wrote CIMS Executive Director Michael Burnell in his weekly newsletter to the industry.
    Burnell also shared these comments about shipments last week from the major labels and Direct Shot Distribution which is used by all three majors to distribute to indie retailers.
    “A Critical Time”
    “We are at a critical time at independent music retail. The issues at DSD have seriously hurt our ability to serve our customers as we need to serve them,” said Brunell.
    “How many times will our customers show up at our stores on release day,” he said, “only to be told we can’t help them because our industry has managed to foul up our supply chain?”
    “We’re independent retailers, famous in some quarters for having issues with the music business, but we truly are at a crossroads,” Bunnell concluded. “The future of our businesses are at stake – have the immense resources of the industry been applied to this issue? It doesn’t look that way from where we are standing.”
