quincy video store closing
All the Best Video will close its doors for good no later than Aug. 31, said owner Dan Jenks. Shoppers will have to go elsewhere to rent videos and DVDs, as Quincy’s only video store sells off its stock and vacates the site. Dan said he had 24 video stores scattered throughout California up until a couple years ago. Since then he has closed 19 of them as he prepares to retire. He lived in Quincy as a child, before moving to Chico when he was 14 years old. He said that the video stores have been a good business and he has done well by them. “I’ve had a good run,” he said.
