Most new movies, television seasons and documentaries are released on DVD and Blu-Ray every Tuesday at Hastings and other retailers that sell videos. Tuesday is also the day most new albums and video games are released and sold to the public.
GoHastings.com provides a list of upcoming releases in the "Coming Soon" area of the movie section. Visitors can sort the movies by date of arrival, although not all movies listed have a release date posted. Even if the release date is not shown, Hastings allows visitors to pre-order the movie.
Releasing new movies, music and video games on Tuesdays is a marketing strategy designed to bring customers into retailers on what is traditionally the slowest sales day of the week.
