  Is Family Video opening new stores?
Yes! The movie and game rental business remains strong. Since 2010, we successfully opened over 150 new stores and our results
confirm the video rental industry remains a preferred delivery method of entertainment content. Our brick and mortar rental stores provide
the selection and copy depth necessary to satisfy our customers who primarily rent new releases, but we also have the space to carry
thousands of other movies for under a dollar. Additionally, we carry new release games in PS3, XBOX 360, Wii, and Nintendo DS formats.
We pride ourselves on being the place to go where everyone in the family can find entertainment when they want it.
  How is Family Video expanding while other brick and mortar rental companies are going out of business?
Family Video has many distinct differences from other rental chains. Family Video is a well-capitalized, privately held company that has been in
the movie and game rental business since 1978. We select convenient locations, provide rental terms at affordable prices and offer a unique
selection of movies and games in the communities we serve. Movie Gallery, Hollywood Video and Blockbuster were all highly leveraged, publically
traded companies with significant cost structures to support, held inferior locations within the communities they did business, and rented movies
and games at distinctly higher prices than Family Video.
  Where are you expanding next?
Family Video is currently looking for additional opportunities within the 20 states and Canada where we currently operate. We still have areas of
growth in all states in which we are currently doing business. Filling the void left by our former competitors is our top priority while expanding into
states immediately adjacent to us. Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, North and South Dakota, Colorado, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia are in the
planning stages.
  Is Family Video involved in any other projects?
We own over 600 of the 740 real estate locations in which we do business. Our real estate ranges from a single tenant facility of 2500 square feet that
houses our video store operation to multi-tenant strip centers exceeding 30,000 square feet. Our real estate division leases space to over 400 local
businesses in the communities we serve. Interested in our leasing space? Click here to see available properties.

Other projects we're involved in:

  • In 2002, our e-commerce site was launched. FamilyVideo.com sells new and used movies and games to all 50 states.

  • In 2008, we started Stayfit 24 fitness gyms. We currently operate 6 gyms with plans to open more.

  • In 2009, we purchased a high-speed, fiber-optic network and now provide advanced internet, television and phone services in Pekin, Illinois, through a
       subsidiary called ITV-3.

  • In 2012, we announced a $100 million deal to open 350 Marco's Pizzerias over the next 5 years.
  •   To whom do you contribute your success?
    The men and women that work at Family Video!

    We have over 7,000 talented employees from all over the Midwest and they have made the difference. We are not the typical company with layers of
    hierarchy in place and department silos that prevent innovation and change. We challenge and empower a talented group of individuals to solve
    problems and run the stores like they own them. Our Store Managers and District Managers have undergraduate and graduate degrees and work with
    our Regional Managers on a monthly basis. All of our Regional Managers and most of our corporate staff all started by running a store.
      Is Family Video hiring?
    Yes! We need to hire another 1,000 people this year to meet our growth goals. You can walk into any store in the company to obtain an application or
    complete an application online (follow the-Apply Today!-link at the top of this page).
