Rising rents, Netflix, Redbox, video-on-demand, and piracy to blame. The once ubiquitous videostore has gone the way of the buggy whip and corset stay.Back in 1985, there were just 4 video rental shops in the city. By 1991, there were 61. The number peaked in 1999 with 71 videostores. By 2010, the number had fallen to just 49. By 2012, fewer than 10.

North Campus Video is remembered for its deep library of classics, art films, and cult movies, its colorful staff, and its capacious porn and adult novelty room.
