Sunrise Records to fill HMV’s shoes with Canada-wide expansionFebruary 28, 2017 11:55 pm
Sunrise Records is set to become the new tenants of over 70 stores previously owned by HMV.
The music note-shaped hole left behind by HMV’s closing will be filled by Sunrise Records as part of the music retailer’s coast-to-coast expansion plan. The first confirmed store location in B.C. will open at HMV’s old storefront at Metropolis at Metrotown. Polo Park shopping centre in Winnipeg will be home to Manitoba’s first Sunrise Records. The new stores will start opening in April 2017.
“We are excited to bring Sunrise nationwide, and would like to thank all of the suppliers and landlords who worked so closely with us to allow us to be a destination for physical music in Canada,” Doug Putman, president of Sunrise Records said in a statement.
