Why is it the media is blaming the web for the closing of video stores. Independent video stores for the most part are doing just fine. BB and MG all got into trouble because of the debt they carried trying to beat each other out. They over expanded, they carry far to many copies, they change policies as much as a toddler changes a diaper. They never offer deals, while the indie store focuses on the customers, knows the customers likes and dislikes, carries foreign films and a very deep catalog, offers deals. MG was known for poor customer service and screwing customers on the various fees, BB on the other hand is just too expensive and again the policies change daily.
