One of the few video store rental places is going out of business after 34 years. It is not unexpected as it is hard for video stores to compete with in influx of online subscription services and instant rental or purchases through Amazon and even Walmart.

Delmar began as an Ace Hardware and tool rental shop in 1966 and video rental of beta (pre-cursor to VHS tapes)in 1981 and eventually changed over to video rental. I read an article where over the years they had over 109,000 card holders.
