The stores are set to close by April 30th, but that means good news for you because until then, there is a massive closing sale going on.
HMV needs to sell off as much inventory as possible, so right now, everything in store is now up to 30% off.
And remember, they don't just sell CDs. They also have DVDs, blu-rays, posters, vinyls, t-shirts, collectibles, earphones and more.
So if you have any of those re-gifted HMV gift certificates sitting in a drawer somewhere, it's now or never.
You'd better hurry before all the good stuff gone.
Although HMV is closing in Canada, the company will still operate in the U.K., Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.
(TIL) Today I Learned: Until today, I never actually knew what HMV stood for. I always figured it was something like "Happy Music & Video". But it actually stands for "His Master’s Voice", which was the name of a painting showing a dog listening to music.

Bath & Body Works Canada confirmed in January 2021 that it would finally be launching an online store in the fall. It was welcome news for Canadian customers, who know all too well the struggle of trying to track down their favourite products and having to either resort to the pricey U.S. online store or take a chance on long lines at their local shop.
But since that initial confirmation and a formal announcement that followed in July, Bath & Body Works fans have been in the dark. Fall 2021 is almost here and the company has released no further details. But MTL Blog can at the very least confirm the Canadian online store is still on track to launch this upcoming season.
The event name, Sudbest, perfectly captures the goal of the event. Organizers call it the Sud-Ouest's "largest commercial revival initiative," bringing forward as many of the borough's merchants, artists and artisans as possible.
"The Market is intended to be a tailor-made economic stimulus tool for artists and merchants in the Sud-Ouest by giving them a commercial opportunity to promote themselves as part of an event reflecting the neighborhood," said restauranteur Gaelle Cerf, one of the event leaders, in a statement.
At the market, you can expect to find a 100% Quebec wine and cider bar run by the owners of the new convenience store Le Cinq à Sept (Ville-Émard), a bloody caesars bar at Lord William Pub and a "post-pandemic" beer made specially for the event by 4 Origines Microbrewery.
You'll find food trucks, a Perles et Paddock oyster bar, jerk chicken grilled by Boom J, Food'elles and more.
At this month's event, DJ Kelly (Rap Mommies) will be spinning on Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. On Sunday, you'll find Jazz St-Henri, 99 Wolves, and ELMNT at the DJ booth.
Fifteen stands are expected at the first Le Sudbest weekend, according to communications coordinator Julie Poulin. But Poulin told MTL Blog there are already 35 kiosks confirmed for the next event on August 28 and 29.
The third and final (for now) Sudbest weekend is scheduled for September 25 and 26.
After a year of being cooped up inside, Montrealers are finally able to get out and re-explore the city's famous food scene. Whether you're stoked to reconnect with your fave haunts or itching to try somewhere new, there's plenty out there to discover.
If you're a fan of Benny & Co., you have another reason to escape your abode on the hunt for something new — and you just might get a free meal out of it.
On July 22, the family-run chain will be unveiling three new restaurants in downtown Montreal, the Old Port and on Beaubien. To mark the occasion, they're giving their first 600 guests a free takeout meal each. Each restaurant opens at 11 a.m., so be sure to snag your spot in line to get your free meal.
The way it works is that the first 200 guests at each new restaurant will receive a free takeout Choice Meal: a quarter chicken meal chosen by the rotisserie chef and cooked to perfection by Quebec's rotisserie-chicken experts.
If you can't make it to the main event, don't worry because the Choice Meal will be available until August 22 at the low price of $6.99 (it's normally $8.90!).
To find out more about how to get your free meal from Benny & Co. on July 22, head to their Facebook page for all event details.
When you visit, you'll get the chance to check out their new dining room that's been revamped from the ground up. Sound and lighting are adapted throughout the day, giving the restaurant a fancy and modern mood.
They also have a new ready-to-eat counter with meals that you can pick up when you're in a hurry but still want your rotisserie fix.
With more than 80% of menu items made with Quebec-based products, a meal from Benny & Co. promises to not only be tasty but local and authentic too. It's this kind of homegrown deliciousness that makes it a must-try for any Montrealer.
