Sunrise Records are one of Canada’s top music retailers and are now going to be taking their operations national with the take over of 70 HMV stores across Canada.
The expansion sees the music retailer expand in all major markets including British Columbia, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. More locations will be announced in the coming days once more details are finalized. Stores will start opening in early April 2017. The news comes on the heels of music chain HMV Canada being put into receivership after recently announcing the closure of all nationwide stores.
Sunrise Records president Doug Putman commented on the news: "Sunrise has always strived to offer superior service and a wide range of products at reasonable prices to its loyal customers. 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."
Sunrise Records currently has 9 stores in Ontario.
