HMV Toronto

HMV pulls the plug on Eaton Centre location

Remember CDs? They are but a distant technological memory by now, kind of like the stores that used to sell them. This is why it's sad to report the Eaton Centre HMV is closing its doors.

The store's lease is up at the end of December, and the company unsurprisingly does not plan to renew it. Staff have been informed of the closure, and signs went up in the store today proclaiming 30% off some items. After the Bloor Street location closed earlier in 2016, this leaves the Yonge street location as the lone standing downtown HMV.

Other HMV locations and major record stores have followed suit in the last few years, leaving the city's independent retailers the last ones standing for music, and music-related stuff like magazines, in-store shows and concert tickets.

Keep an eye on the sale signs in the window as prices are sure to continue drop on all those DVDs and other odd trinkets the store has been selling since the CD market dried up.
