I finally landed my dream job at Family Video…. And then they all closed down about six months after that. I was about to become store manager and I was having a great time learning the store and the customers. I was absolutely devastated by the news that we were closing permanently. Although I am extremely saddened by the ending of this era, I am eternally, grateful for having been a part of it.

Pros and Cons
Movies of course and fun environment with great customers
It closed down
