The last movie store in our town closes Sunday. Internet downloads killed her business. While I loved the idea of buying a bunch of her movies in the going out of business sale for next to nothing, I'm gonna miss the place.

She tried to sell silk screened tees but the town is too small for that.

Interesting, because Blockbuster continues to thrive where I live. Not that I go there.

The local video store I like has found itself two niche markets in addition to mainstream movies: they're the only place you can rent hardcore porn (although other places sell it) and they have a huge collection of anime, plus a good Bollywood section.

Essentially, if a market can't support the business even with one or more additional niche markets, it's not going to make it. I feel your loss.
