Continually growing within the international-retail music industry, HMV has proven itself as an innovative leader in Canada since 1986. HMV Canada has grown from a smal-retail music chain to become one of Canada’s music-market leaders with over 104 stores from Newfoundland to British Columbia. In 2005, HMV became the first retailer to win both CD and DVD Retailer of the Year. TRIVIA: But what do the letters HMV stand for? The anagram of HMV stands for, “His Master’s Voice”. This comes from the famous painting by Francis Barraud painted in 1899 of the dog, Nipper, next to a gramophone listening to, “His Master’s Voice”.
