New arrivals for the week of August 26, 2008

Hello Everyone,

Last week we discovered we didn't own Marlon Brando's "The Wild One" or the classic Christmas horror film "Silent Night, Deadly Night". This week we fixed both of those oversights. We also got a pile of British TV stuff: Blue Murder (Set 3), Midsomer Murders (Sets 9 & 10), Rosemary & Thyme (Series 3), and the Two Fat Ladies series. It was also a big week for BluRay: two seasons of Heroes, Nightmare Before Christmas and two operas (La Boheme and Il Travatore) came along with about 20 other titles. Lastly, the re-make of "My Sassy Girl" girl arrived -- see if you can spot former Caffe Paradiso employee, Erin Stutland, as one of eight people credited as "Woman of No Consequence".

If you've been in the store this week you may have noticed what might very well be the smallest bike shop in the world (right now it's 2' x 2') sitting where the Pepsi machine used to sit. We call it the Itty Bitty Bike Shop. It's got all the basics for your commuting needs: chain lube, inner tubes, lights, multi-tools, patch kits, some reflectors, tire levers, water bottles, and, of course, the ChampaignCountyBikes.org Urbana-Champaign Bike map. We've also got a pump (schrader and presta) in case you need some air. By the way, 10% of all sales will go to ChampaignCountyBikes.org and another 10% will go to The Bike Project in Urbana. Ride safely! (link)

We've also done some minor tweaking with our pricing. Our daily specials have expanded to include more sections and are now a "1/2 Price Deal" ($1.25 per rental). There were a few sections in the store that rented for cheap every day -- they are now $2.50 or $3 for $6 everyday like everything else but those sections have been assigned a special "1/2 Price Deal" day as well. Blocks are still our best kept secret and your best value. If you buy a Super Block your rentals work out to only $1 each and you get to keep everything for 3 nights. What a steal! You can find full pricing details in the store or here.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
