PTAN Retro Memory #9 – Video Stores

“Be kind, please rewind.”

Before Netflix was the go-to digital destination for movies, there was this quaint thing called “The Video Store.” The Friday and Saturday night ritual for many of us included a trip to this now-extinct locale, a place where rows and rows of physical videos – via the now defunct technology known as VHS tapes – promised a night of romantic comedy, blood-curdling horror or, for the less adventurous, good old family fun. It seems quaint now, going to a physical location to pick up movies on VHS or later via DVD, but going to these stores was a big part of the fun, anticipating the weekend with the promise of a good flick or two, recommended by the friendly clerk behind the counter.
