Video Business used to be for two parties: buyers at mom 'n' pop retail video shops, and small video publishers.

Now neither exist in measurable numbers. And so now their trade magazine goes too.

In days gone by, this was THE magazine for the whole video industry. Sad, but definitely a sign of the times.

I had a boyfriend who's family owned a couple video stores. They always had copies of this lying around, and I use to love to read them. It was a pretty good magazine in it's time, but with so many video chains and mom n'pop shops going out of business, there just isn't any market for it. It wasn't just the internet that killed this one.
