It took me a long time to figure this bullchit out.

It means Brick and Mortar.

Like..Circuit City, Best Buys, Uncle Jim's Store, etc.

Small retail stores.

Yes, the best way to buy dvds these days.
Last year the internet had many great coupon deals that were too good to pass up EVEN THOUGH the Customer Service and dvd turn-around at these sites really sucks (see the many complaints people have when an online retailer does not ship quickly or screws up the order completely).

We are seeing more threads about B&M stores because the deals there blow away most online retailers now (Gladiator for $14.99, X-Men for $14.99, Henley's Inside Job $15.99).

Why deal with online retailers that now offer poor coupons, poor service generally, lack of respect for there customers (see Amazon a few months ago).

Online is still good for obscure titles that are not carried at B&M's for sure. BUT for main stream titles like CHICKEN RUN, X-MEN, GLADIATOR, TOY STORY etc. why deal with an online retailer when you can now walk in to a BestBuy or CC and walk out with the title THAT day.

And how about today when MAJOR dvd titles were available for only $11.99!
True, you had to fight thru the Xmas crowds but the prices of dvds have now hit an all-time low.

Hopefully the Internet Retailers like Buy.com, Amazon, DVD Empire, Express.com, BigStar.com etc. will wake up and realize they have been overtaken by the B&M's once again.
