April 30, 2019 - The Future Of Four Star
As you may or may not have seen, toward the end of April we made the tough decision to curtail our hours to noon to 8pm, as well as be closed one day of the week for the first time in our 34 years of operation. This was our baby step before announcing that the current staff intends to collectively move forward into the next chapters of our lives. As to the fate of our collection of 25,000 DVDs and Blu Rays, we are looking to the Madison community to find the next person or group of people to tend to the store. We envision this playing out in one of several ways. If an individual wants to buy the entire stock of the store outright, we will consider any reasonable offers. Another scenario would involve a new group of volunteers forming and gaining non-profit status. We would of course train in this group and still be around to shepherd in this new era of keeping our collection available to the public. We are preparing ourselves for other contingencies, but we believe passing the torch would be a good final step in fulfilling the promise we made to Madison and our customers five years ago when we bought the store through our fundraising campaign.
We would like to emphasize that we will continue to operate as normal in the coming months and give anyone who wants to step forward the time to do so. We will have an email sign-up instore for those who are interested in attending a meeting to coordinate with others to take over the store.
Thank you for supporting us over the years,

Friendship, like fundamentalist Christianity, is difficult.
ok so this pick is actually for Edward Penishands but porn titles don't display in our online catalog so this is the next best thing, Edward Penishands won't make sense without having seen this first anyways.
Billy Joel related fatalities have slowly declined since 1987, but there are still a few every year.
Julianne Moore is great and all, but you really need to see the original.
