Turn on the TV, video store set to open after shock closure
A BELOVED store Warwick residents feared may be gone forever is set to open its doors again.
Network Video on Palmerin St unexpectedly closed last month, but owner Jeff Clark said the store would be reopening tomorrow under a new owner.
Having owned the video store since 2013 with wife Tracey, Mr Clark said it was the end of an era but his daughter Kayla would still work at the store with Tracey, who will be the manager.
"We didn't know where we were going to get our movies from too so we're happy,” he said.
"A lot of people in Warwick are habitual, we've got a lot of people that are still on the membership that don't have Foxtel and streaming or internet.
"They rely on DVDs.”
"I just hope they support the new owners ... if it doesn't work this time it could be the last time there will be a video shop in Warwick,” he said.
Mr Clark said he was looking forward to focusing on managing Warwick Post Office.
The family also owned What the Pop, but are shutting the store and have sold some memorabilia to the new Network Video owner.
He is also planning to run a Night of Horrors night each year, with freaky actors and carnival rides.
The new owner is a former employee of the store but preferred not to be named, Mr Clark said.
Hours will be noon-8pm Sunday to Friday and 9am-8pm on Saturdays.
