Does anybody out there know why in the world Video Mania closed?! I loved that place and have been going to it since it opened up behind Andys Tire over 20 years ago! They had the BEST tanning beds!

That is strange . Is Video Mania Closed for good or did something happen to make them temporarily close? Was there a sign or note on the door or something?

Yeah i thought so too. There is newspaper covering all the windows & papers saying as of Sept 13 2009 they were closing and to leave all movies in the drop box. That was it! I tan there just about every day & they havent said anything about closing. Im sure gonna miss them! It didnt say they were closing temporarily & from the looks of it its for good.

It's a tough time to be in the video rental business. It's all moving towards Internet delivery & downloads. Why would a store keep an inventory of discs & tapes when they can just authorize a download that expires in 48-72 hours? Blockbuster is learning this lesson the hard way.

I don't see how the smaller video rental places have lasted this long.

I dont know what to do about the lost visits. I cant find anybody that knows anything about it. I tried to call but the number is disconnected. I had the v.i.p. package where they took $21.80 out a month and they took it out about a week before they closed. Thats one of the things thats got me so shocked. Ive known jeff (the owner) a very long time and just cant see them doing anybody wrong.

I was hoping that he was going to get out of the video business and focus on tanning. Maybe remodel and add more beds.

For once, we're talking about a problem here that isn't necessarily revolve around the fact that Lewisburg just plain sucks.:(

As another guy said, the video renting business is dying out. Nowadays, people can just watch movies on the Internet. If you're smart or dubious enough, you can even watch them for free. With it being so easy to do so, why should I go through the trouble of going out to a movie renting place? If they want to stay in business, they need to step up their game and compete with Netflix just like Blockbuster is doing.
