Why this post?
Well, two reasons. The first is mentioned in my disclaimer at the bottom, but the second – and most important – is because we want more people to patronise them.
We’ve been happy customers there for more than a decade, and currently take advantage of their $39.95 a month membership. There’s no lock-in, so we can cancel at any time. And we get to hire 4 DVDs at once. Overnight videos need to be returned (or renewed) the next day, but 3 day and weekly hires we can keep as long as we like.
This latter feature is particularly useful for watching TV shows, which we do a lot. Oh, and that’s another thing – they have a great TV show range. Just about every show you can think of (eg The Wire, The Tudors, Life, NCIS, The L-Word, Breaking Bad, Heroes, Bones, Sarah Connor Chronicles, etc as well as all the comedies 2 1/2 men, Seinfeld, Scrubs, How I met Your Mother, etc) are there. In fact they have one of the best ranges of TV shows I’ve seen (and I’ve been to at least one other store :-)). And bonus, on the older shows hiring the entire series counts as one DVD.
But the best part –> the staff: Matt, Chelsea, Lucy, Jack, Andie, Hannah, Angie, Bec & Adrian – they all rock. Sometimes we go in just to chat to the staff – they should set up a little cafe in there. Flat White with one please!
