[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 08/26/09 6:08 am] [Full Blog] [Related Posts] [Tweet] [Facebook]
With only two weeks to go now before the Beatles Remastered hits store shelves, we have now heard from many readers, and have confirmed, that the Beatles Remastered Mono Box Set, which will be available in limited quantities, is no longer available for pre-order on the web sites of Best Buy, Costco and Wal-Mart.
We do see that Best Buy is now listing the Mono Box as being available as an "Import", however, it is listed with a retail price of $703.98 and a sale price of $563.18. (The final Amazon price for the Mono Box set was $229.49.) In addition, Best Buy is listing delivery date for this import as 9/15, about a week after the Remasters' delivery date of 09/09/09.
It is unknown whether or not these retailers have separate allotments of the Mono Box for their "brick and mortar" stores, and if they will have copies in their stores of the box sets even though they are no longer selling them on their web sites.
Even though the Mono Box is no longer be available at Amazon in the US, as we previously reported here on the Beatles News Blog, we can confirm it is still available for pre-order at Amazon in these countries:
There has been no formal statement from EMI as to the status of the sales of the Mono Box set. Stay tuned to Beatles News for updates as we get closer to the release date.
