Hello Everyone,

OK, so maybe VHS isn't dead after all. In the first four days of the "Grand VHS Blow-Out Sale" we sold over 5,500 video tapes (and still have about 9,000 left). The plan now is to keep selling them for another week or so and see where we are then. As to the eternal question "What are you going to do with all the tapes that are left over after the sale is over?" the only definitive answer I can come up with right now is "I have no idea" -- but I promise to let you know as soon as I do.

Also, it seems a lot of folks are very concerned that since we are selling off all of our VHS titles tons of great movies will no longer be available at Rentertainment. Believe me, we are worried about that, too. Just so you know, here is what we did prior to the sale: (1) First, we went through all of the International, Independent and Documentaries (and a smattering of other sections) to check if we had the title on both VHS and DVD. If we only had a VHS we checked to see if it was available on DVD. If it was, we've ordered it. If it wasn't, we set it aside. (2) Second, we went through all the films that were set aside (from before) and checked their rental history. If they had rented at least once every other month we put it in the basement. These will return to the rental shelves after the sale is over. If it hadn't rented out at least once every other month it went out on the shelf for sale. So, we are going to loose a few titles but we have already placed orders for over 500 DVDs that we didn't have in stock before. Those will start appearing next week. We also have about 300 titles that will be returning. as rentals as soon as the sale is over. Hopefully we won't be missing too much. (NOTE: As always, if there are any great films you think we need please let me know.)

Have a great day!!!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
