Independent Video Stores & You—Sending Some Love To A Fellow Movie Store

From Dennis’ recent article in the Portland Press Herald about the challenges facing a Bath indie video store:

As for River Bottom Video, Goad said, well, all the things I’ve always wanted to say in this column. “Heartwarming is not a strong enough word,” said Goad. “It’s humbling. And I like to think that people get something out of the video store experience that they don’t get from Netflix or cable or Redbox. You’re not just a number here, you’re a person. We video stores are like the dodo, but we have a lot to offer. That’s the appeal of our shop – it’s not just a dispensary of movies, it’s an experience. And these days, even one person choosing to spend their money with us can make a huge difference.”  (Read the whole article here: As for River Bottom, Goad said, well, all the things I’ve always wanted to say in this column. “Heartwarming is not a strong enough word,” said Goad. “It’s humbling.

We’re still out here, people. And indie video stores all need your support. The best thing about that, is that it’s easy for an individual to make a difference—just by choosing to spend a few bucks a week with us rather than some big corporation, you can help stores like Videoport and River Bottom stay alive.
