The days of rent­ing a movie have ended

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE wave of video stores clos­ing around the na­tion has fi­nally hit Roma, with OgilV En­ter­tain­ment clos­ing its doors.

The of­fi­cial last day to rent a video in Roma was Sun­day.

The video store has re­mained in Roma for more than 20 years, with Terry and Shenen Ogilvie tak­ing it over and keep­ing it alive for the past three.

OgilV En­ter­tain­ment owner Terry Ogilvie said it was dev­as­tat­ing mak­ing the de­ci­sion to close.

“We’re def­i­nitely sad to hang up the boots,” he said.

“It was a very hard de­ci­sion for us to make but you can’t fight to­day’s tech­nol­ogy and un­for­tu­nately we’ve had to close an­other thing we love do­ing.

“Ev­ery­one is down­load­ing and stream­ing these days and video shops are a thing of the past so it was just due to lack of rentals and with the progress of to­day’s tech­nol­ogy we had to make the de­ci­sion to shut the doors.
