Victoria is about to lose a local music retail institution. Lyle’s Place will close this fall.

The record store made the announcement in a post to social media Sunday afternoon.

“It’s been an incredible four decades, but the time has come to close our doors,” said Lyle’s place in their statement. “We’ll see you at our store closing sale September 1st – mid-October.”

Everything in the store will be 50% off the lowest marked price. Hours of operation will be Tuesdays through Saturdays in September from noon to 5pm.

Lyle’s Place opened in the 1980s and briefly had a second location on Goldstream Avenue. Many will remember the TV ad that used to air on CHEK TV in the early 1990s.

Everybody’s going to… miss… Lyle’s Place.
