Goodbye HMV

It looks like today (April 14th) will be the last day for HMV.

Last-Call-for-HMV

Only two stores are still open, Yonge Street in Toronto and the HMV in West Edmonton Mall. I have some really fond memories of HMV, from being a customer to doing store checks, processing orders from them while I worked with BMG. The store had changed considerably since I first started visiting the stores and even though I rarely shopped their in recent years, they were still always there. Sure, Sunrise will be moving in and replacing some of the old HMV stores, but it just won’t be the same. That connection I had with HMVs will be gone and I’m actually a little sad about that.
