Hamilton’s Family Video store closed last month, days shy of its 16th anniversary at what was its Main Street location.
Highland has also recently closed stores in Champaign, Illinois; Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin; Battle Creek, Michigan; Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
The Illinois-based store chain has persisted in recent years in areas where Internet service and film streaming were unreliable. Forbes magazine in 2017 estimated that Highland Ventures brought in $450 million in annual revenue.
In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Derek Dye, a brand manager for Highland, estimated that 200 of its stores closed overall as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. He told the newspaper that he expected 50 to 60 more stores to close by year’s end.
