TORONTO – Sunrise Records is revealing more of the locations where it plans to open stores.
The Ontario-based company confirmed a batch of malls on Thursday where it will replace closing HMV retail spaces. Sunrise says some of them could begin operating within a few weeks.
Details come after the company revealed last month it would move into 70 retail spaces being vacated by HMV Canada as it shuts down all of its stores across the country.
In British Columbia, Sunrise will open two locations in Burnaby, while Alberta will have stores in Fort McMurray, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. Two locations in Calgary, and another in Edmonton will be added to the previously announced two-level store in West Edmonton Mall.
Manitoba will have two Sunrise locations in Winnipeg, while Saskatchewan will get one in Regina.
In Ontario, Sunrise will open stores in Belleville, Guelph, Hamilton, Mississauga, Ottawa, Owen Sound, Pickering, Sault Ste. Marie and St. Catharines, alongside its existing stores in the province.
Quebec will see six stores across Hull, Quebec City, Saint Bruno, Saguenay, Trois-Rivieres and Victoriaville.
Two stores are planned for New Brunswick in Saint John and Fredericton.
Sunrise says it will reveal the rest of the planned locations starting March 20. Stores will begin opening in early April.
