Family Video closings (NOT Family Video closing!)

I stopped at the grocery store on the way home and discovered I haven't been paying attention. Our local Family Video closed on October 28th. Nothing on their marquee/street sign ... just a note taped on the door thanking the community for the last 15 years.

The cashier at the grocery store informed me that several other ones in nearby towns have closed too.

Springfield is the birthplace/headquarters of Family Video ... just wondering if this is happening elsewhere.

We stopped at Family Video last Friday and rented Mario Party for the Switch. This is in Peoria, IL. So as of then ours was still open. I'll drive by today and double check.

Re: Family Video closings (NOT Family Video closing!)

Most of the ones that I know have closed have been in the smaller towns surrounding Springfield, though they did close one in Springfield earlier this year.

Trying to remember where all the ones are in Peoria ... I can only think of the big one in Peoria Heights. The one on the south end (near my wife's family) closed years ago, I thought.

The one where I live in Lebanon, TN is still open and always busy.
