Sucks that people will lose jobs, but this has been a long time coming. 30% off is still probably regular price. Happy hunting down the road.

Thx for the heads up.

Went in tonight and used up my points before the liquidator got a chance to pull the plug on that system. I'll miss it - I'm an album guy.

They were trying to sell Pie Face for 39.99 when it was $19.99 everywhere else (albeit, hard to find in stock).

Moves like that is why I kept walking right by HMV..

HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO SEE THAT RIPOFF PRICING DOESNTWORK. SHORT TERM SUCESS, LONG TERM INEVITABLE DEATH. LOOK AT AMAZON, WALMART, IKEA, MRS B's NEBRASKA FURNITiRE MART ( now owned by Warren buffets Berkshire Hathaway), ZARA, Forever 21.

I'm gonna go work on this model for the re birth of my HMV be back in a year. ✌🏾
Useless rant. It's like your life depends on HMV

So, is this reflected in all stores yet? I was AT HMV Newmarket and didn't see any signs or anything on sale, really.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

If someone actually wants an album, what's the go-to now? Amazon?

Did anyone have a list of alternatives stores (Online and offline) for Blu-ray except Walmart and Amazon for example?

I remember when Sam the Record Man closed years ago and it was a big deal.... now hmv.

For me, it's more the change in how I feel about music/movies. Years ago, we'd buy vhs tapes for every new movie we liked, and then years later we had hundreds of tapes and no room to store. Sold them all off.. over the same time converted to dvd and have hundreds of those. Then hd-dvd, and finally blu ray. Just became to much, and since we can stream a movie to re-watch no reason to buy the physical medial anymore. The only dvd's we buy were kids movies for portable dvd players, and the kids are older now so over that as well.

The entire movie and music industry needs (is getting) a shakeup so it inevitable that stores like this either figure out a away to adapt, or in this case fold.

I liked some of their collectable section, so now even one less place to browse for that stuff.

I'm still in disbelief about the closing of a&b sound.
That brings back some high school memories!
Lining up for their boxing day sale in the cold Vancouver rain on Hastings street and taking turns to run across all those lanes of traffic to the McDonalds to grab food, warm up and use the bathroom while freezing our soaking a$$es off waiting in line...some good memories!

Maybe Mr. Treadeau should step in and buy a few albums, at those prices that should be enough to keep HMV alive another year

In Ontario add Sunrise Records to the list if there's a location in your city. Dollarama and Dollar Tree also occasionally have Blurays.

Online there's Barnes and Noble. No free shipping to Canada but they charge HST to Canadian customers so no customs surprises.

Winners (oddly enough) usually has decent selection of collectables at a good price. Not right now since the stores still restocking form Christmas but come Feb there should be more.

Do you know anywhere else (aside from Amazon) that carry collectables?
