New arrivals for the week of February 17, 2009


Greetings everyone,

I've been asked more than a few times my thoughts on the closing of Pages for all Ages. It is very sad on many levels. They were one of the biggest (if not the biggest) locally owned retail stores in the Urbana-Champaign area. So, of course, thoughts like "If it could happen to them..." sprang to my mind immediately. But, more importantly, Pages was a place unique to our community. With it closing we are one step closer to being just like everywhere else. Starbucks instead of Paradiso. Panera instead of Mirabelle. Chili's instead of Milo's. How boring would that be? One could argue Pages lost and outgrew its uniqueness when it moved to Savoy, increased in size and started to look more like one of the "big" bookstores. But, they still retained a lot of local flavor and gave back to the area in many ways -- as a community center, through donations to not-for-profits, and by investing money back into our community. I am saddened when any local business closes but the closing of such an anchor seems even harder to take. Please, support locally owned businesses. It doesn't have to be Rentertainment. It doesn't have to be all of them all of the time. It doesn't even have to be exclusively. But, when you can, please do. Unique locally owned businesses are one of the many things that makes Urbana-Champaign such a great place to live.

Here's a handy list of some locally owned businesses. Visit a few you've never heard of -- you might find a new favorite spot:

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
