Opening of Movie Gallery
by Tim O'Connor


April 19, 2005

You might be heralding the opening of Movie Gallery in your community, But their stated purpose is to be the dominant source for video rental in rural and secondary markets in the United States.

They don't give back to the community or purchase any of their supplies in the local market ending up being a negative impact on a local economy. If you do have an independent video store in your community think of what they buy in your local economy everything from stationary to services such as accountants, lawyers, computer services etc.
