Toronto Music Stores in Decline


Recommended Posts

I live on Queen St. and have noticed many music stores go down....

Penguin is not alone...recently Acid Records and 2 the Beat also closed.

Sign of the times, the old formula does not work. Why should I have to pay $27 for an import CD when 90% of that cost is shipping and storage for the product. Why can't I walk into a store order it, then the burn it to CD or load it on to my I-Pod type device and then high quality print me a copy of the artwork for a reasonable fee.

If that were the model I think more stores would survive. People still like going into a shop, bu this old "brick and mortar" model is broken.
