Videoland, 3733 Broad River Road: 2006   2 comments

Posted at 12:08 am in Uncategorized







This old country-house-looking building is out on Broad River Road in between Saint Andrews Road and Harbison Boulevard. I guess the area is starting to be developed some now, but for many years, this was essentially out in "the stix". I would often notice this mom & pop video store as I drove by, and wondered how the thing lasted well past the video startup era and into the Blockbuster era. In the end Blockbuster did come to the area, though it was a short lived victory.

The place seems to be a barbershop and hair salon now.

  1. I had a couple of friends who used to live across the street at Brook Pines Apartments. One of them would sometimes rent movies at that place. It was run by two guys of (I think) Chinese extraction. Their selection was pretty meager, as I recall. I'm surprised that they lasted as long as they did.

  2. No kidding, Mike. I went in this place one time, years ago, and though to myself that it was a joke. But, this was also during the time when HBO, Cinemax, etc. would have free weekends and I would stock up on blank video tapes and record everything I could. Now you can't even record a show from some cable channels without stripping the DRM off so you can watch it anywhere!! I miss the good old days.
