CD Plus closing stores in St. John’s and Corner Brook

CD Plus in the Corner Brook Plaza closed Wednesday, while the CD Plus at the Avalon Mall in St. John’s closes today. Dale Bailly, vice-president of operations in Canada, said 17 of the stores closed across Canada as of Jan. 1 and 35 remain in business. In 1999 there were 150 stores. “Currently we are just shutting down the non-profitable locations,” Bailly said. “If they don’t make money, we close them.” Bailly blames music and movie downloading for declining sales. CD Plus started as Music City in the 1960 in Winnipeg, Man.
