Last Canadian Music Chain Closes


Did you know Music World was the last Canadian-owned national music store chain?  Neither did I until today when I read Music World is under bankruptcy protection and will close its stores.

That makes HMV the last chain standing in an age of digitized music collections and downloads.  There  was a time in the early 90s when I would head downtown and hit HMV, Sam the Record Man, Music World and A&A Records.  I'd usually go home with two or three CDs, too.  Times have certainly changed.

How many CDs each month do you now buy in a non-digital format?
