Nostalgic for video stores yet?
With video stores disappearing from the urban landscape, and the mom and pop video stores long gone, is it too soon to get misty eyed about them?
This past year stalwart Blockbuster was finally laid to rest (in Canada), and Rogers video is mostly where you can pick out your cel phone now, having shrunk by half. I don't even know if Jumbo video... The first of the superstores in Canada when I was a teen, is still around.
What I do miss is the mom and pop corner video store I grew up with, particularly since I was a latchkey kid with access to the family video store account after school every day, and they tended to ignore age restrictions when renting movies back then too.
