Netflix hasn't killed me yet: The resilience of family video movie stores in a digital and streaming world
This study analyzes the closures of Family Video movie rental stores through a binary logistic regression and two-step floating catchment area analysis. A dataset of over 660 Family Video stores was compiled for analysis. The regression analysis shows that smaller, freestanding stores, and stores near food cotenants were less likely to close compared to larger, shopping center housed stores. The floating catchment analysis indicated that there are many more stores located in areas of low accessibility. However, as accessibility increases, the likelihood of a closure decreases. Results are contextualized within the retail geography literature and routes of future research are discussed.
