Abt Electronics Shifts Focus in Response to Toshiba's Announcement That It Is Stopping HD DVD Production

Chicago-based Abt Electronics responds to the Blu-ray victory over HD DVD by reworking its inventory to meet new customer demands.

Glenview, IL (PRWEB) February 29, 2008 — Toshiba's announcement that it will stop production of HD DVD players has spurred the Chicago-based Abt Electronics store to shift its focus towards Blu-ray players, and to increase its Blu-ray inventory in order to meet customer demand for this product. Other electronics stores will likely be making similar adjustments.

After Toshiba's announcement, Abt Electronics noticed a surge in the number of customers searching for Blu-ray players. This sharp increase is being seen in many electronics stores around the world, with some reporting up to a 150% increase in the number of customers looking to buy this hot item. Abt Electronics expects customer interest levels to continue to grow as the price of Blu-ray players, which will eventually replace standard DVD players, drops over time.

Abt Electronics is already in the process of phasing out the HD DVD models it has remaining, and has expanded its selection of Blu-ray players to include brands like Denon, Pioneer Elite, Samsung, Sharp, Panasonic and Sony.

Toshiba's decision will, in the end, turn out to be beneficial for Abt Electronics, by allowing the store to focus exclusively on one high-definition format, and thereby increasing its expertise with Blu-ray equipment.
