Video Rental Stores Now Offer Tanning to Stay Alive

Posted: September 15th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video Rental Stores Now Offer Tanning to Stay AliveSubmit Comment
While the big movie-rental stores are closing down forever, over 10,000 independently-owned stores are figuring out ways to stay alive. One popular move has become combining movie rentals with tanning beds.

More than 3,500 places have added a tanning salon to their stores, and owners claims that peak hours, days and seasons for tanning coincide with the slow times in the movie-rental business. So a typical store could earn as much as 40% of its total revenue from the tanning beds and 60% from DVDs.

"It's keeping us in video," said one of the store owners. "I don't think we could pay all our overhead with just video."

While many see rental-stores as a dying business, it is reported that Americans rented $6.5 billion worth of DVDs in just 2009. And the fact that Blockbuster keeps closing more of their locations, it means more money for the smaller guys.

This is nothing new. Video stores here have offered tanning since the 80s. They've always kind of gone together.

but what will we get ? A cheezy security cam shot of a fat, overweight, hair male customer tanning in the nude, probing his ass and watching Larry the Cable Guy's Christmas Stravszaganza.
