posted in shopping discussion as well but this seemed like a good place too.

Unfortunate, they had brand new dvd releases for so cheap.

Holy crap, I just got the e-mail too. Was it really that expensive to maintain?

Never used it, how much did a movie rental typically cost?

Just got an email about this. TOTALLY BUMMED OUT OVER THIS!

They put Zip out of business then flee the country like Target. Guess it is hard to cover costs at $1.50/rental.

I refuse to rent on demand from Robbers. Guess I will just have to wait a few more months for the movies to reach Netflix.

wow, i think the only place left to rent a movie here now is one lone Jumbo Video store, Redbox had very reasonable (cheap) movies.
