HMV closing Bloor Street store

Big-box music stores haven't fared well in Toronto over the past few years. So, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that HMV is shutting down its store at 50 Bloor St.

Located in the Holt Renfrew Centre on the Mink Mile, this HMV location will stick around until the end of March. There's no word yet on what'll be replacing it in this high traffic area of the city.

If you head over during the next month and a bit, you can expect to see big sales - right now, certain items are up to 50 percent off.

A few years ago, HMV closed its Queen West outpost and in 2014, Sunrise Records shut down both of its remaining Toronto locations.

HMV still has downtown Toronto stores in the Eaton Centre and on Yonge Street.
