Did Redbox Kill The Video Store?
For those of you who remember the days of the VCR, a Beta or VHS tape and a date, this walk down Memory Lane will also take you into the local video store. You remember, the old brick and mortar stores that sprung up everywhere for about a 30-year period in the United States?
Remember at Blockbuster when all the new movies were rented, you would wait by the drop box for someone to bring back he movie you wanted. In terms of movie rentals, Redbox has a simple model. Place machines in high traffic areas and let the machine do the work of the video store. Let's face it, for those who remember the video store experience, this is not much different. For only $1.00 you can stay home and enjoy a video.
