Toronto's Sonic Boom Record Store Forced to Move into Honest Ed's
Published Jun 20, 2011If you're a music lover living in Toronto, chances are that you've spent countless hours thumbing through the shelves at the record store Sonic Boom. Well, soon you're going to be doing your shopping in new surroundings, since the store will be moving locations this summer.
As press release informs us, Sonic Boom is being forced out of its current location by a larger corporation. Luckily, the store owners have found a new home just a block away: they will soon be moving into a street-side section of Honest Ed's, the famed bargain centre on the 500 block of Bloor Street West.
"This isn't about the success of our business. We're doing great," Sonic Boom boss Jeff Barber said in an announcement. "It's about adapting to a situation that was forced on us."
Barber isn't kidding we he says that Sonic Boom is doing well commercially. The store will open a second location in Toronto's Kensington Market neighbourhood in July. This means that the city's music fans will soon have more options than ever when it comes to record shopping.
