Sugarland's Not-So-Nice Wal-Mart Price

THE PRICE IS WRONG: Plenty of discussion about Wal-Mart pricing the new Sugarland album at $11.88, and its effect on sales for the release. Insiders say the retailer is now trying to squeeze a profit margin out of music, which is no longer a loss leader driving traffic to stores. In fact, the giant big box hardly ever advertises CD releases in its weekly circular, as it looks to use music margins to bolster other, hotter loss-leader product categories. (10/25p)
