Merchandising: Best Buy Taking Preorders for ‘Strange World’ Steelbook
January 25, 2023
There wasn’t much of note among the Jan. 24 DVD and Blu-ray Disc slate to impact retail new-release displays.
Shelves at quite a few Southern California Targets and Walmarts continued to look neglected. Even when the displays had shelf tags for the week’s new releases, it was a fair question as to whether those slots being empty was less due to the store selling out its inventory and more a factor of the understaffed clerks not bringing the discs out to the floor to begin with.
The week’s biggest new title, Universal’s Violent Night, was even listed as available online only by Target’s website.

Meanwhile, Best Buy continues to take preorders for upcoming Steelbook exclusives. The latest touted by the chain’s website was Disney’s Strange World, arriving Feb. 14. Best Buy’s 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo pack in exclusive Steelbook packaging is listed at $39.99.
The animated film follows a squabbling family of adventurers who journey to a far-off land in order to locate more sources of a plant that is their society’s key energy source.
