Hastings Entertainment's Web Site Serves As Cyber Treasure Hunt For Holiday Shoppers

AMARILLO, Texas, Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery is often the greatest part of shopping during the Holidays.  Shoppers this season are in for a treat with the online cyber treasure hunt that is www.goHastings.com.  The online retail site is full of different products ranging from books, CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray movies to video games, consumer electronics products including everything from iPods, MP3 players, and accessories to Blu-ray players, musical instruments, and other home and portable electronics, and trends merchandise such as comics, apparel, t-shirts, action figures, posters, greeting cards and seasonal merchandise.  Hastings Entertainment (Nasdaq: HAST) operates 146 superstores in 20 different states and is heavily involved in the repurchasing and selling of used entertainment.

www.goHastings.com allows customers the unique experience of purchasing used products from across the county by utilizing a system that scans and pulls inventories from each physical Hastings superstore.  Customers regularly sell back their books, movies, CDs and video games to gain store credit or cash, and Hastings guarantees their used products 100 percent.  As a result of this recycling program, Hastings has one of the largest inventories of used entertainment products in the country.

Because of the large inventory available, www.goHastings.com has created a cyber treasure hunt for shoppers this holiday season.  While on a search for Susan Boyles' newest CD, a shopper from New York may find a used copy of The Gift.  After placing their order, the CD may end up being shipped to New York, from a Hastings superstore in Odessa, Texas or Bozeman, Montana, where a customer sold the CD back a week earlier.

This unique retail model provides the ultimate recycling tool and is a bonanza for consumers who love movies, music, books and video games.  The large inventory and guaranteed products makes www.goHastings.com a great place to treasure hunt, save money and discover something new, with complete satisfaction, this holiday season.
