More disappearing Toronto heritage: HMV on Yonge Street.


I haven’t returned to Toronto for any reason, vacation or otherwise, since I moved out of there a decade ago, and sadly I don’t think it would feel much like home anymore if I did go back. Too many of my favorite haunts there — record stores, book stores, movie theatres — are now gone forever. I guess it’s supposed to be progress.

The latest to go is HMV, whose stores are rapidly disappearing all across Canada due to bankruptcy. Their massive store at 333 Yonge St. was definitely a place to go see whenever I was downtown, along with Sam the Record Man and The World’s Biggest Bookstore (R.I.P.).

Anyway, be sure to check out this item from NOW Toronto about HMV’s last days
