End of line for lo­cal video shop

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

VIDEO City will close its New Nor­folk branch at the end of the week.

The shop at 44 High St is hav­ing a clos­ing-down sale to clear movies, games and boxed sets of DVDs af­ter 20 years in busi­ness.

The clo­sure is a sign of the times as DVD rentals are re­placed by on­line ser­vices.

It leaves the Video City chain, which once had branches all over the state, with just three stores, at New Town, Kingston and Launce­s­ton.

Orig­i­nally sit­u­ated at 49 High St, the New Nor­folk branch of Video City opened in Septem­ber 1997. It moved in 2004.
