August 01, 2017 - An Important Announcement
Attention Video Angels!
It’s the third anniversary of Four Star Video Cooperative and we have a few changes to announce. Effective September 1st, we will be modifying our store hours and our Unlimited Subscription plan rates will be going up for the first time since the plan’s introduction almost a decade ago.
We are going to be shortening our hours of operation from 14 hours a day to 12, and we need your input. We are considering two possibilities; either 10AM to 10PM, or 11AM to 11PM. We want this change to affect our customers as minimally as possible, so please let us know your preference. We will be collecting customer feedback until August 15th, when we announce the final decision on store hours.
We are increasing our Unlimited Subscription plan rates for the first time ever to account for the inevitable rise in operational costs due to inflation and (pardon the euphemism) “Industry Trends” . The three-at-a-time plan will now be $20.99, the four-at-a-time plan will be $26.99, the five-at-a-time plan will be $30.99, and we are introducing a six-at-a-time plan for only $32.99. Monthly Damage Protection will remain $3 per month. Individual rentals will still be $4.49 with Damage Protection offered for $.25 per rental. We have deliberated on this decision and have held off making it as long as possible, but this change is necessary to remain competitive in an industry where even large chains couldn’t adapt their business model to remain solvent.
We understand that these changes will be alarming to some customers, but they are being made with the store’s future in mind. We look forward to continuing to provide you with great movies for years to come.
In Heaven Everything Is Fine,
Four Star Video Cooperative (Helen Boldt, Andy Fox, Lewis Peterson, Nick Propheter)
