Family Video stores were closed between six weeks and two months, he said.
“Covid did a few things and some stores just did not bounce back and Springfield was one of them," Mohler said.
He added, “The other problem that we found is that at that same time we were shut down, Hollywood kind of stopped making movies. There’s not enough product right now to really jump start some of the video stores.”
Out of the 500 stores Family Video owns, the company has decided to close “a couple dozen stores,” Mohler said.
According to Family Video’s website, the company’s property-ownership model is different from most companies because they buy and develop the buildings and land where the stores are located.
Mohler said Family Video still owns the Springfield building and is planning to pursue other tenants.
