Sam the Record Man in 2007 & 2022

Posted:

Looking northeast towards the corner of Yonge St and Gould St in Toronto’s Downtown Yonge area. In 1961, Sam the Record Man moved to 347 Yonge St. The store was a huge attraction and, over the years, gradually expanded, eventually occupying the entire corner.

The store closed in 2007, and the corner is today the site of the Toronto Metropolitan University Student Learning Centre. Sam the Record Man’s iconic signs are located atop a building at Dundas St E and Victoria St.
