The inventory sale at the TLA Video on Locust Street starts today and runs through Tuesday, September 6.  All next week, will pay our respects to the TLA Video stores through personal recollections from proud staff members, both past and present.  And if you’re a former TLA employee or simply know one then please spread the word that we want your/their memories.  Should be fun.

  1. The lines are that long because they are checking every single disc on Amazon. If the used price is higher on Amazon, they will mark it up accordingly (this practice doesn’t exclude titles that are still in print). However, there is a big difference between a rental disc and a usual used copy. What a horrible way to end this great store.
