(CBS MoneyWatch) -- It is the end of an era for CDs at Best Buy.

The electronic giant says it will start removing them from store shelves beginning July 1st.

A report from Billboard shows CD sales dropped 18.5% last year as streaming music and digital downloads gain more momentum.

Other big box chains like Target are reportedly weighing whether to pull CD's as well.
