On a recent August day, my kids and I were caught in a freaky, sudden rainstorm and we ran into this HMV to seek cover. So we browsed. And browsed. And browsed. It was a long rainstorm! LOL! Anyhow, we were really taken aback by how massive this store is. There are three levels, and they are big: vinyl records and movies are downstairs, classical and jazz music is upstairs, and there's quite a... more

If you are not fluid in French I would not shop here. They don't honor their signs, and will lie about pricing to take advantage of you, also they will talk about you in French in a derogatory manner right in front of your face. And the way they treat you in English is even worse. They claimed I had taken a picture of an liquidation item sign a different day, they came back to cheat the system.... more

I had not been in an HMV since the chain pulled out of the American market some years ago. Very depressing what has happened to the classical selections at HMV. I remember the store in Cambridge MA as being a real treat to go to some 12 years ago. What a shame for the store and industry in general.

Perhap not always informed of some movie titles, the staff is ever and invariably helpful. To be fair, I would'nt know who directed '200 cigarettes' either. The prices are favorable. Most poular works (dvd & cd) are on sale, perpetually. It's only bleak that HMV is offering expired technologies. I cannot remember the last time I purchased a cd. Times a changin'.

the store is ok. selection is decent if compared to online. staff is decent, not the most competent but better than some other places.

they used to have a gaming section but it was way too expensive. they now have clothing but quality wise, its a crapshoot with walmart but at a premium price.

their movie selection is bad with ridiculous prices. on seldom sale, it does hot but outside of those... more

I've been coming to this HMV for a while during my time here in Montreal. I've gotten lots of things here and it's just great. The sales are amazing. Today I got two DVDs for 23 dollars, one of which was five bucks and the other fifteen but three movies in one! More than a bargain. Too bad they got rid of their video games but at least there's other places I can go for that. Nice to have an HMV... more

Record stores (both larger and independent) are a dying breed when it comes to physical brick-and-mortar shops. Whenever I travel, whereever I travel, I always make it a point to go into any record store I come across. I was walking down Rue Sainte-Catherine one day and happened upon this place. I didn't know it was there until I came upon it. The last HMV I recall going to was in... more

Dropped into the HMV today and this place is massive! It's multi level and has a ton of media along with clothing and other miscellaneous items. The selection is very large and and they have listening stations all over the place.

There are always clearance bins but I found the staff a little hard to track down today. When you do get their attention they are very helpful though.

Huge music and DVD megastore. I thought I would be able to find some music from France here considering the huge Francophone selection but was disappointed to find that it is mostly just music from Quebec. They do have really nice listening stations. Check out the lower level which is much mellower than the first floor. Prices were fairly reasonable.

Super-duper huge multi-story record store! The staff member that helped me out was amazing, a song was playing in French on the overhead sound system that I decided I liked & after I told him just a few words of the song, he located the CD for me!

Good discount CD section too -- I found the few years old British Now 52 for $4.99!
