Linton's Movie Gallery store to close

Linton's most popular movie rental emporium, Movie Gallery, will soon be closing its doors. Movie Gallery, Inc., the nation's second largest movie rental store behind Blockbuster, filed bankruptcy for the second time in February. They initially closed hundreds of stores but recently announced to employees that it will close the 1,906 stores that remain. The Movie Gallery store in Sullivan surprised local citizens last week when it announced its closure and started running a liquidation sale.

This information comes as no surprise with the popularity of Netflix, online video, and $1 DVD rentals from Redbox. Expect to see lots of great DVD's for sale soon at Movie Gallery.
