This is bummer news! It’s been confirmed that record store HMV will be closing all 102 of it’s locations in Canada. The company filed for receivership over the weekend, and the stores will liquidate their stock before shutting down over the next few months, including HMV locations in Limeridge Mall and Eastgate Square. HMV locations in the UK will remain open.
This news makes me really sad! I’m still an old school kind of guy who loves going to buy the new albums by my favourite bands on the release day. HMV was always been my go to store for buying music. It will be a sad state of affairs when no store in the mall sells music. I’m going to miss you HMV, thanks for all the great music! The Financial Post has all the details!
