Bring back video store

Sitting at home with kids on a Saturday night? Want to rent a movie?

If you live in Sterling-Rock Falls, good luck.

Since the closure of our only locally owned and operated Video Villager stores, there are no options. Red Box just doesn't cut it. They do not release new releases when they come available for purchase. Plus, there are only seven boxes in the two towns.  

Come on, people. You can't sit here and tell me they closed the stores due to lack of customers. Wasn't there another option? Put the business up for sale. Cut back to one store.

I don't think I speak for just my family when I say, Bring back the video store.
