Could Silverlake Video Be Next Neighborhood Shop to Close?

Silverlake VideoUNFORTUNATE RUMORS are pegging Silverlake Video, 3206 Glendale Blvd., as the next Atwater Village retailer to close. No official word, but in the age of Netflix and DVRs and digital downloads, it makes sense that a neighborhood video rental store might have a limited shelf life. It's a good store, with staff enthusiastic about film, so let's hope they have a happy ending after all.

It is a nice store with a friendly staff, but it is definitely a dying breed. Hate to say it, but unless they can transform themselves into some other kind of business, there probably isn't a lot of hope for them...at least, long term.
