So I’m sure that it will come as no surprise that the Video rental business is a tough one. We want to keep providing access to the best film selection in the city for you, our loyal customers, but it’s getting harder and harder all the time. We’ve been racking (or is it wracking?) our brains to try to figure out a way to keep off life support and remain healthy. We’ve already upped our DVD sales options (special orders and a bigger in-store selection), and brought in new T-shirts. These ideas are helping, but we want your input. Here are a few suggestions we’ve come up with:

Turn part of the store into a cafe
Install a Tanning Booth
Fight Club

Sell new items such as:

Ice Cream
Records
Comics
Posters (Movie paraphernalia)
Cigarettes
Vapes
Fight Club gear

Or maybe a wealthy patron would like to step in and take us under their wing. 🙂

We’re appealing to our wonderful customer base for ideas as well. What kind of things would you like to see at Black Dog? Shoot us your best thoughts! No idea is too dumb! We’re not quite ready to go into this good night.

    Since you asked (what to buy) – snacks go with movies. Video business isnt my area of expertise, but that seems like a natural pairing?
