Toronto's beloved music store is closing soon and here's how much rent will cost
When one of Toronto's beloved record stores announced it was closing, it rocked the local music community, and the space is now up for rent.
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank Greg and all of his incredible staff who gave so much during Soundscapes’ 20 glorious years of operation. The Toronto music scene wouldn’t be what it is without your dedicated work and commitment to artists and fans. pic.twitter.com/De8xwBWMzj— Six Shooter Records (@SixShooterR) May 23, 2021
The store is known not only for an extremely thoughtful stock of CDs, vinyl and books, but also as a hub for concert tickets and a mini venue where artists used to pop in to perform.
The store will be closing in September but the listing is already up and the landlord is asking for $6,000 per month. The space is 1,184 square feet, and is fully air conditioned. Annual property taxes are listed online as $2,187.
The listing also says it could be used for commercial, retail or office purposes, but it would be incredible to see the space resurrected as something even close to the cultural hub that it has been for years.
The CDs that packed shelves lining the walls of the narrow store may soon be gone, but there's still lots of potential in this Little Italy space.
