Joe Video’s physical store closed at the end of 2022

A note from Joe to the many wonderful customers who supported Joe Video over the past 17 years

It is with no small amount of sadness that I must announce the closing of Joe Video at the end of this year. Aside from the not entirely accurate assumption more and more people make that “everything’s streaming now,” the financial reality of operating a small retail business in an environment where everything from wages, product, commercial space, insurance, etc. keeps going up, makes it unrealistic to expect the store to be profitable enough to sustain any longer.

On a personal note

I am going to very much miss the opportunity to visit with many of you “regulars” as often as we’ve been able to over the years  in some cases decades! – and that to me is the saddest part about closing the store. Thank you all so much for the encouragement, kindness, movie trivia, and laughter we’ve shared. No price can be put on that.

As I’m sure many of you will also, I’ll miss the company of and working with Lucas and Omar. They’ve been enormously helpful in navigating the changes brought on by the pandemic, and more recently in helping me approach this closing chapter of Joe Video with thoughtfulness and positivity.
