does either Longs have a video rental program? also, some Supermarkets & Grocery Stores sell videos, but i don't know which ones. —ArlenAbraham

  • I know that Nugget, Albertsons and Safeway sell videos, but should they go here? They aren't video stores. But, then, neither are Wal-mart, Target, Costco, the Bookstore, etc....What do you think? —ss
  • Hmmm.... I guess as long as we're listing places one can purchase videos, any store that sells videos should be on the list. After all, the person who visits this page will most likely want a fairly complete listing of places they can buy/rent videos. I agree though, that just about every little hole in the wall sells some sort of videos anymore, which could lead to a long list of seemingly unrelated businesses. Maybe changing the page title and/or adding subcategories of video stores v. stores selling videos would clear up any confusion. I rather like including Mom/Pop stores like International Food Market, because I doubt that most of the other places carry Bollywood vids. —AlphaDog
