Vision Video

This is my favorite video store in Athens. As far as I can tell its the only locally run chain, but that's not the only reason I like it. Aside from there localness, the five for five deal, and thier Mondy night dollar special, the thing Vision Video really has going for it is the movies.

Unlike most national chains Vision Video has a wide selection of rare and otherwise hard to find movies. Instead of trying to influnce what people rent like Hollywood Video they actually listen to their customers and try to buy what they want. They have a whole wall of costomer requests. Additionally they have a large selection of TV series ranging from Buffy to The Simpsons to Alias , and a selection of cult movies including such classics as Reefer Madness and VHS. So if you don't have a DVD player you're better off sticking to Hollywood Video or Blockbuster, just as long as you like high prices and confusing polcies.
