Record Store at Shoppers Mall 1980s

I first came to Ben in 1982, and bought a Dean Friedman album at a record store at an entrance to the Shoppers Mall. Was it AA Re ords?

A &; M Music?

I think that was the name, but I recall the location being more centrally located in the Mall

Sam

May have been here. I remember A&A, Music City and possibly Mister Sound. I think there were a couple of others that came and went. Last one I think was Top 40.

Muntz

Back in the early days of the mall, there was also Muntz Music near the entrance between the mall and Woolco/Zellers. In addition to cassettes/8 tracks/LP's, they also carried Pioneer stereo gear and Infinity speakers among other brands.

music store

In the late 90’s it was AVE (AV Entertainment) and early 2000’s changed to CD Plus before closing for good

Music city

I remember a music store in the Shoppers Mall. It was right at an entrance. It was where Smitty’s is now. I think it was A&A records, then became Music City? I remember going there after or before my first concert experience at the Keystone, in the mid 80’s. That concert was Honeymoon Suite and Haywire, and Honeymoon Suite was signing autographs at the music store!  
Later there was a central music store in the mall, maybe where north shore is now? That was CD plus at the end, but I i think it had a different name before that.

That's certainly the location, so it must be the one. Thanks!

A&;A

It was A&A Records and tapes then A&A Music just inside the doors by Smitty’s current location. I was the manager from store opening to closing. Blast of a job listening to the latest tunes. (Well until rap came in) lol music city was more towards the old target location. And I believe music plus was on the main drag.

Honeymoon Suite

A&A was at the same spot and name till the end. The Honeymoon Suite autograph session was at A&A. That was a fun day. People lined up around the corner down to Safeway. I believe Muntz became Music City. Cd plus was more towards the food Court on the main strip, and may have become or was Record Baron for a bit. Record Baron was also on 18th street behind where Applebees is.

I'm pretty sure record baron was in the Keystone Village with MicroPlay and Warehouse One back in the day...Could be wrong though..that was a long time ago

That's the one! Another respondent had said Music City, and the location sounded right, but the fact that it was A&A Records first confirms it.Thanks!
