Palms Video is a rep­utable home en­ter­tain­ment and in­ter­net café busi­ness op­er­at­ing in one of the busiest streets in Port Al­fred.

In home en­ter­tain­ment it of­fers all the lat­est movies, TV se­ries and video games for rent, as well as an im­pres­sive li­brary of older movies.

The shop has about 17,000 movies and se­ries in stock, and it gets new movies ev­ery Mon­day.

It also rents out a num­ber of de­vices. The in­ter­net café is a hub for on­line ac­tiv­ity, equipped with both desk­top and Wi-Fi ac­cess.

The busi­ness, which is 13 years old, has a new owner, Niel Havenga, who has big plans for the busi­ness go­ing for­ward.

He men­tioned some of the plans he has for the busi­ness with re­gard to ex­pand­ing the ser­vices the busi­ness cur­rently of­fers.

“We are in an en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try, so our plans are to ex­pand the en­ter­tain­ment side of the busi­ness. We plan on open­ing up a gamer’s lounge which will cater for young and old.

“The gamer’s lounge is go­ing to be opened at the back of the shop and clients are in­vited to come and en­joy vir­tual re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ences, from shark cage div­ing to a walk through the wild Serengeti of Africa,” said Havenga.

There will be com­fort­able couches and a café to pur­chase light meals.

Palms also has many spe­cials this De­cem­ber to suit ev­ery­one’s needs, with a big dis­count on its game and movie rentals, so pop in at the shop to find out what the spe­cials are.

It is also cur­rently sell­ing new PS4 game re­leases as well as pre-played games.

Within the shop it also has a cof­fee shop where you can en­joy cof­fee and other drinks for your leisure time, per­haps catch­ing up on a news­pa­per or read­ing your favourite book. It is a great and peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment to en­joy your lunch hour in.

“We have many ser­vices to of­fer our cus­tomers such as an in­ter­net cafe, print­ing, fax­ing, e-mail­ing, courier ser­vice and we have four PCs that will help you surf the net.” said Havenga.

It is open ev­ery day from 8am till 8pm, so pop in at the shop in Camp­bell Street.
