About SML Entertainment
SML Entertainment was incorporated in Calgary, Alberta in 1956. It was founded as Southern Music Ltd.(SML). The company initially operated jukeboxes in bars and restaurants and quickly expanded operations to include coin operated shuffleboards, pool tables and eventually video games and pinballs. SML expanded geographically over the years across Western Canada and opened offices in Vancouver, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton. Red Deer, Lethbridge, Cranbrook, Fernie, Banff, Medicine Hat, and the Okanagan to name a few. SML opened family entertainment centres in many of these cities and soon had installed and was servicing its coin operated equipment at over 1000 locations in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan..
Today the SML operation has transitioned into a retail store company and while we still sell, operate and service coin operated equipment we also have 6 locations and over 50,000 square feet of space selling refurbished coin operated equipment as well as new and used pool tables and Hot tubs. Complementing its huge selection of pool tables, hot tubs and spas is an extensive offering of products including patio furniture, barbecues, shuffleboards, dart boards, table tennis, poker tables, bar stools, foosball tables, air hockey tables, jukeboxes, pinball machines and many more home entertainment related products.
SML is currently in its 60th year of operation and while it is very proud of its past, it is the diversification in entertainment product offerings and innovation of the shopping experience and service that will shape our future.
