HMV Music Store to Close in Downtown Vancouver

As has been widely reported this month, HMV is set to close its flagship megastore in Downtown Vancouver at the end of 2011. High rent and increased online sales competition has forced the music retailer HMV Canada to close the 50,000 square foot 3-story location on Robson along with a smaller location in Richmond Centre. The store closures will affect 60 jobs. Ironically, the megastore was formerly a Virgin Megastore before it too closed for similar reasons.
