Just heard the gallery is closing..Am I behind times or has anyone else heard this? I understand its not just Richmond,but all galleries. I heard it 3rd hand so wondering if its true.

Have heard the same thing......

With the advent of NetFlix and the like and being able to get shows and movies downloaded via the Internet, it has probably been coming.

But - it is a sad day... I never had a bad experience doing business with them. I wish them well.

Poor Bob Lauck. Maybe his girlfriend will now start making our community look a little more business friendly.

Just heard it from the Movie Gallery workers that they will be open for about 6 more weeks. Today purchases were 20% off

Movie Gallery is closing a bunch of their stores, but not all. This is due to restructuring of the mother ship in court mandated chapter 11 bankruptcy. Richmond is just one of those that is having to close.
I found that there will be about 1900 left out of the 4500 or so that were in business in 2005.
Yes, the reasoning is due to NetFlix, RedBox, Blockbuster Online, etc taking over the market.
It is sad to see a business close.

My son will miss renting the games before he buys them to see if he will like them.
