Retailers Wrapping Up 201627 Dec, 2016 By: John Latchem
The last week of 2016 didn't offer anything unusual, with most retailers focused more on year-end sales than the new releases.
The big new titles on Dec. 27, such as Universal's Snowden and Sony Pictures' When the Bough Breaks, weren't put out there with any promotions exclusive to any particular retailer.
Best Buy ran a big "Best of 2016" promotion in its weekly ad circular, touting movies starting at $14.99.
Best Buy also had a deal for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies, with $10 off the purchase of two, and $20 the purchase of three.
Target also hyped UHD Blu-rays in its weekly ad.
Best Buy had a display of the "Underworld" Blu-rays with exclusive Steelbook editions. Copies included a $7.50 coupon for a ticket to see the upcoming Underworld: Blood Wars in theaters.
