Queen Video is closing its College location after a decade (and selling off 30,000 rentals)
In a heartwarming note on its storefront window, Queen Video announced the closure of its College location earlier this week. “Ten years hasn’t been long enough, but our lease has ended…thank you Little Italy, we will miss all you movie lovers.” While this is unfortunate news for neighbourhood film buffs (at least, those who still frequent video stores instead of just downloading everything), the store’s Queen Street and Bloor Street locations will continue to peddle rentals for “many years to come.”
In the meantime, if you fancy adding to your physical DVD collection, the College outpost is selling off all 30,000 of its titles for $6.20 each. There are some solid deals on hard-to-find videos, including silent films, niche documentaries, music movies and tonnes of foreign films. Of course, there are also popular Oscar picks, but if you’re going to delve into the extensive archives, it’s worth emerging with an obscure find or two. The sale is on until April 30.
