I've debated opening a video store for a while but with the advent of video-on-demand services from the cable providers I have to seroiusly question if the business has a future. I'm beginning to think that video stores are going the way of buggy whip manufacturers. I'd like a video store that carries the mainstream titles with a high proportion of widescreen for videophiles and a lot of independent and foreign films. I live in an upscale town (which used to be nice and normal until the city people discovered it) so there is an education level for this sort of thing. We don't have a Blockbuster and the two rental places in town are pretty sad. Do any video store owners or people in the business know what the trend is or if there are any good websites that track the video rental business? I also wonder whether I would actually make any money doing it. I have no clue what video store owners actually make. Thanks for any ideas!
