that was sudden

Tonight I rolled by the local video store to grab something “actiony” — and it was closed.

Not like “we’re closed for tonight” but closed closed. For forever.

The sign said they just couldn’t stay in business anymore, mentioned “new venues” (netflix et al), so after 17 years they’re shutting it down.


(Y’know, when we signed up for Netflix, our visits to Video I actually stayed about the same. What we really dropped was the icky Blockbuster down in Lacey.)

I wish they’d said *something* though.
