“Family Video means happiness to me,” said Danny Knight, whose photo is shown above. “Ever since I was a little kid I loved going to movie stores. The reason I bought the Family Video stuff is so I can have a reminder of a better, easier time that meant so much to me, a time where anything was almost possible. This end of an era is very disappointing and sad.”
“How does a business say farewell? Family is showing us how: with grace, humanity, and gratitude. On January 5, Family Video went out of business. All its brick-and-mortar stores closed. But the brand is still alive — ironically in the digital world that helped usher in the company’s demise.”
“Founded in 1978, Family Video went from renting Betamax tapes to VHS to DVDs over the years, and grew to an 800-store chain at its zenith. The company, which owns most of its retail real estate, evolved the business model, partnering with Marco’s Pizza in 2015 to give customers another reason to venture out for their video entertainment.”
Family Video, a video rental company that outlived Blockbuster by a decade, announced this week that it will close its several hundred locations after 42 years in business. The news marks the end, at long last, of the in-person movie-rental industry.
