Family Video Today
We are the largest movie and game rental chain in the United States. We operate over 500 Family Video stores in 19 U.S. states and Canada. Our unique property-ownership model makes us a different sort of retailer because we buy and develop most of our buildings and land. We have developed more than 600 retail strip centers and count Fortune 500 companies as well as Mom and Pop retailers among our tenants.
Our entrepreneurial spirit is what keeps Family Video strong. Recent efforts include opening Marco's Pizza restaurants adjacent to our brick and mortar stores to offer one-stop shopping for dinner and entertainment, sister companies such as Highland Pure Water and Ice, a self-service kiosk providing purified water and ice, and StayFit-24, state-of-the-art fitness centers that offer workouts in a clean and safe environment.
We are a company made of talented and dedicated people who take pride in a job well done – and like to have fun doing it. Our days are built around four daily goals; to learn, to teach, to WOW and to improve. More than 7,000 people make our team strong and successful as we serve our customers and build this exciting company.
As our company grows, there is unlimited potential for talented people. Building more stores and developing new brands means making additional opportunities for part-time and full-time employees, as well as assistant managers. After successfully completing a comprehensive training program, Store Managers are offered opportunities to grow with our company and relocate, District Managers are needed to oversee multiple stores and Regional Managers are promoted to build our company in new markets.
How We Started
In 1946, Clarence Hoogland started Midstates Appliance & Supply Company. In 1953, Clarence’s son, Charlie Hoogland, took over the company. In the 1970s, Midstates got “stuck” with a large quantity of videos. Charlie’s team got the idea to rent the videos, and in 1978 Family Video was founded.
Most Family Video stores are open weekdays 11am until 10pm, with extended weekend hours, though hours may vary by location. Please call your local store to confirm.
