Video Rentals Go On Sale
Hollywood Video will be closing its branch on East Broadway in Columbia within the next week but they aren't the first store to close. Movie Gallery closed both of its Columbia outlets in May causing some are wondering how come Ninth Street Video is able to stay open.
"We have a really good staff here," says Owner of Ninth Street Video Janet Marsh, "and they really like films. They try to be helpful to customers and recommend things they might like to watch that perhaps they haven't heard of."
Blockbuster is now the only chain video store left in Columbia and the corporation as a whole is nearly one billion dollars in debt.
