Sam the Record Man
Sniderman's father, Sam Sniderman, started selling records in his brother's radio store in the 1930s. His company grew into a national chain, with a flagship store on Yonge Street in Toronto. In the 1980s and 1990s the chain was operated by Roblan Distributors, with Jason Sniderman as Vice President. Sam retired in 2000, and the majority of the chain was closed in 2001 after declaring bankruptcy. Jason Sniderman and his brother Bobby saved the store's iconic neon signs, and re-opened the Yonge St. location in 2002. An attempt at building the Sam's brand with online sales was not enough, however, with the rise of mp3 downloads and competition from chains such as HMV down the street, Sam's was forced to close in 2007.
