The Green and Orange Place That Still Rents Movies: Investigating the Closures of Family Video Movie Stores
Author ORCID Identifier
This article analyzes the closures of the retail movie rental chain Family Video. Using a data set of more than 600 Family Video stores, a logistic regression analysis pinpoints the factors associated with the closures of these stores. Large stores, stores with a large surrounding population, and stores in large shopping plazas were more likely to close, whereas stores with food and retail cotenants were less likely to close. The discussion of these results is contextualized within the retail geography literature and future avenues for store closure research are discussed.
