First Run Video Closing

The Reformer has a headline today about First Run Video, our quite-local video rental store, making plans to close their doors.  The move to the new location was costly and not all customers knew they had moved across the street, said the article. A silent partner taking a large share of profits was also cited as a reason for the store not doing well.

RedBox, Netflix, and streaming media have helped to eliminate the idea of going to a store and browsing through aisles of titles.

They'll be closing February 6.

I Hope and Wonder...

Will there be anything left of Brattleboro if and when I move back there?
