There is a local video store near me for sale. Do people actually go anywhere other than Blockbuster or Hollywood Video? I am thinking about checking it out and seeing the retail space. Maybe I could do other things on top of the rental sales like selling home theater equipment and satellite installations. Maybe used video games swapping like EB does and anything else I can think of. Bottom line is I am starting to think how I could make a buck threw other means like this. I am a computer engineer that has been out of work for some time now and my unemployment benni's are running dry. I never thought I'd see the day I couldn't get a computer related job but its been 6 months and nothing appears to be breaking my way. I run a small business (www.extendedtools.com) but its not pulling in the cash I need. The days of making money in I.T. are over! So what do you think? Do people use mom and pop video stores (excluding porn!)? Anyone have any brilliant ideas on a business that could succeed with less than 75K startup funds?
