These days, being named Best Video Store is like winning Best Public Phone Booth. But, from personal experience, I can say that We Deliver Videos was the best even when they had plenty of storefront competition. The staff's film expertise and enthusiasm is a welcome bonus, but it wouldn't mean much if the store's proprietors didn't know how to run a shop. They do.
Best Video Store New York 2010 - We Deliver Videos
We've sort of had it with the online onslaught of movie rentals and download sites. Whether it's Netflix's "Stream It Now" option or Blockbuster's new kiosks or Hulu's offer of free movies only to charge you for the next, it does get rather annoying to watch a movie on your laptop or have to buy a cable to connect the computer to your television. Yearning for an actual video store, like in the old days? We Deliver Videos offers delivery (and pickup) right to your doorstep if you live between East 50th and 100th streets or between West 72nd and West 97th streets. And what a bonus: The employees know their movies. Vague guesses on your part yield just the movie you want. And that's from a big selection of not only mainstream movies but also rare TV series and foreign flicks. Roll 'em!
This is a wonderful store and should get more noterity. They have an amazing collection and the personnel is very pleasant. I love going into this store.
Hands down the best video store ever! They were the first to carry DVDs, and they're personal service is exceptional. Not only can they figure out what film you're talking about (when you don't know yourself!), but they're recommendations are spot on!
