These guys are crooks and liars right down to the details of this closing. The sign in front of the Columbia Heights store says "STORE MOVING SALE". I thought about walking in there and asking where the store was moving to.

OK - how many people knew these stores were still open?

I remember when Blockbuster showed up on the scene and all the mom and pop video stores went out of buisness. The mom and pop video stores would claim Bluckbuster was under pricing them, putting them out of buisness. Now digital downloading(Netflix)is pricing Blockbuster out of buisness. It must be a pain to run a buisness with all the changes that are happening all the time.

Great - hopefully the EP one will go back to Caribou and they'll add a drive-thru!
