Well guys, we are all hunkered down in one way or another. Myself, I seem to be doing isolation in two location three blocks apart. At night with my cats, booze, food, and ofcourse movies. But in the day I’m hunkered at the shop from 12-7pm still. Now sadly there is no more entering the actual videostore because I’m the “Non-essential Videostore” but I am allowed to greet you at the door (proper social distance ofcourse) and hand you your new movie rentals or purchases like everything is okay. Anyways, this week we got some more goodies hitting the shop to keep our selection as wide ranging as possible. So let’s see what’s coming in shall we?
