I don't think the post title is quite right. At one time, this place was Video Magic & Mags. That incarnation closed for a few weeks, then re-opened, apparently under the same ownership, but with a new name and more emphasis on lingerie than videos or "mags". That new name eludes me now.

Anyway, I noticed earlier this month that that operation has closed or re-flagged, and the place is now a second location for longtime Broad River Road "Couples store" Nancy's Nook (which name it always strikes me lacks a syllable).

  1. I worked next door to this place in 1981 and 1982, it was a Dirty Book Store then. Can't recall the name.

  2. It was called the Foxes X back in the mid 1980s. So I've heard.

  3. @badger - lol. Yes I do seem to remember the name now. Very nice disclaimer. Funny.

    I thougt I was going to take a hit calling it a dirty book store, how dirty were they? They were not muddy or anything just a little dusty.

  4. As I recall from my misspent youth, the front area had a diverse selection of normal movies. The back room had the videos for, uh, "mature" audiences. They might have sold books, but the times I was in there, those would have been in a minority. I seem to recall some magazines, though. The videos, and magazines, were as bad as you could get.

  5. @ rick & badger - yeah it was Foxes X. I stated on another post here that they used to have quite a selection of "smoking" accessories as well as the porn. My Dad worked at the Columbia Lumber for a while when it was on Two Notch and I'm surprised he never saw my car in the parking lot. Once, I bought an inflatable doll for a buddy of mine that had just gone through a breakup. A bunch of us took 'her' out barhopping in 5 Points one night. That turned out to be an interesting evening...lol.

    Another cute side story - after the closed the Imperial Garden Chinese restaurant for the house pets in the cooler incident it turned into another porn emporium called This Is It. Several years ago a friend of mine went there to find some gag gifts for my birthday. She told me that she had seen a, how can I say it, a very large phallic sex toy STANDING in the corner. She took a picture of it, showed it to me and asked, "What could anyone do with THAT?". I told her that if she bought it I'd make a table lamp out of it for her next birthday. For some reason she wasn't interested, can't figure out why....:^)

  6. Video Magic did not close, it changed ownership in 2012 and they finally changed the name in late 2013 to match the other stores, and take better advantage of advertising when they place ads for the Broad River location. They are sister stores under the same ownership, but different management.
    At this time, they still do a lot of videos and magazines, but they do also have alot more lingerie and novelties now.
