Trendy Store Moving from Toronto to Erin Mills Town Centre in Mississauga
Sometimes when we think something is gone forever, it reappears unexpectedly.
Anyone who came of age in the 90s or early aughts probably remembers lining up at Sunrise Records—a long-standing fixture in Erin Mills Town Centre—to grab wristbands for an upcoming concert. The process was nightmarish and anxiety-provoking (especially for those who ended up with lawn seats for a 1998 Backstreet Boys concert despite arriving very early), but precious in its pre-technology innocence.
And honestly, bots buying up prime seats online aren’t much better.
All that reminiscing aside, it looks like Sunrise—the Canadian record store that made an incredible comeback in 2017 when it announced it was eyeing defunct HMV locations—is coming back to the newly renovated mall it once called home.
Sunrise recently took to Twitter to announce that its current Dufferin Mall location in Toronto is moving to EMTC in Mississauga.
The news couldn’t be more welcome, as Mississauga is—like most other cities—a perfect spot for more brick and mortar record stores. The Canadian brand, which was founded in 1977, sells music, films, games, and pop culture items.
Offering CDs, LPs, an exclusive coloured vinyl collection, DVDs, Blu-Rays, board games, card games, puzzles, toys, turntables, headphones, speakers, cassette players, lightboxes and more, the store offers something for pretty much everyone.
The new store will also mark the brand’s return to Mississauga, as it closed its Square One location over a year ago.
Sunrise currently operates locations across Canada and boasts stores in Brampton, Etobicoke, Hamilton and Toronto.
An opening date has not yet been announced.
