As we head into our final few months, we’ll be sharing some classic photos and videos from our 30+ year history.
Today we take a look at our old massive Collingwood store, at one point the biggest video shop in Australia, located at 134-144 Smith Street.
In the 90s and early 2000s this was the place to be for movie buffs. Over 70,000 movies filled the shelves and it would take literally hours to choose what you were going to watch!! We opened here in 1989 and left in 2012.
In the late 2000s, when the video rental business began to decline, we dedicated a large section of the store to selling furniture, paintings, homewares and other assorted bits and pieces. In 2012 we downsized to a much smaller location down the street when the industry unfortunately had passed its peak .
A Coles supermarket now occupies this location but movie lovers who grew up in the area in the 90s will always remember it as one of Australia’s greatest and most iconic video shops.
