It's no secret that the old CVS location on Nason Street is no longer vacant. Heck, I was singing the praises back in January when I found out that the building had been purchased. But have you taken the time to go down there and see what's going on inside? There's not a trace of he old CVS left.
Video Signals (the store that formerly occupied a spot on the other side of Nason by Porfino) bought the old CVS building, and since, has been remodeling it to showcase more and more of their massive collection of books and DVDs. It might sound crazy, but they've also managed to keep a space for paint your own pottery. It's a lot of different stuff—that's why they needed the bigger space.
If you haven't gone in there yet, you should. I was stopping in on a whim and stepped in to the bright colors of the store only to find a travel book that I needed. And the section of kids books is fantastic. No more going to another town to find that perfect kids book for a gift—Video Signals has a great selection of all kinds of books. All the merchandise is in pristine shape. And they have a really big room in back for parties.
But the main part of their business is DVD rentals. They have a huge selection. They offer a monthly subscription that allows you unlimited rentals of DVDs and video games. You might be able to walk down there from where you live, and you'll connect with real humans who actually care that you do business with them.
I am wishing them many years of good business. If they care enough to be in our downtown, then I care that they're here. I hope you do, too.
(Sorry my pictures are a little blurry. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to see how they came out.)
