TBT: Get a lifetime membership at your local video store

Video Store Advertisement

Ahh, to live in May 1984 again.

Reagan was president. Swale won the Kentucky Derby. Video stores were opening all over the East End. 

Our Throwback Thursday is an advertisement for the grand opening of Southold Video,  Jamesport Bike and Video and Southside Video in Southampton, published in the News-Review 30 years ago this week .

The ad encourages folks to sign up for a lifetime membership for just $100. It also offers the service of renting home video equipment, complete with technicians.

Front Row Video in Southold, the last indie video store on the North Fork, closed in February 2010
