Before corporate decided to dump all the VHS last summer, this place was definitely the best store in town. They didn't necessarily have the exhaustive selection of VHS of a Movie Madness, but their selection was very comparable. Sometimes they had even more obscure titles. When they started selling their VHS off at $1 a title, the opportunists understandably snatched up the more valuable titles and what was left was novel, but not exactly top quality.
Once the VHS inventory was gone, I stopped going. They've toyed with different Netflix-style plans at this place but for the longest time this particular store never offered that option and if they did, it was only offered briefly and only the people who signed up for auto-renew got grandfathered in. Now, they have this new ""Powerplay"" deal that, quite frankly, sucks. At least Netflix has the decency to *pretend* their plans are unlimited whereas Hollywood's new plans are only good for a fixed amount of rentals per month, and at twice the cost of Netflix's per-title average. The rentals do ""rollover"" if you don't use them, though, although that's not that impressive considering that either way the monthly plan options are high in cost.
It should be noted though that the staff at this store has always been a refreshingly eclectic mix and that everyone is consistently professional, nice, and unpretentious. Nick is especially useful if you want a recommendation for a movie and who doesn't love Danielle's accent?
Pros: friendly, helpful, unpretentious staff with little turnover
Cons: prices, no more VHS, outdated DVD editions
