End of an era

Dear Editor:

The end of an era has arrived and I am forced to make the sad and inevitable move to liquidate the entire Sounds Easy Video inventory and close our doors forever. Although we have had several people interested in taking over the operation of this community icon, nothing has materialized to make this a reality.

In the classic Hitchcock film “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” Doris Day sang the song “Que Sera, Sera.” This song resonates with this moment in the history of Sounds Easy Video … whatever will be, will be.

On Saturday, May 16, we begin the sale of thousands of movies. Choose from hard-to-find classics, documentaries, out-of-print titles, Disney films, kids movies, foreign films, award winners, cult classics, new releases and so, so much more. This is a 26-year collection of some of the greatest movies ever made. Sounds Easy will remain open until May 31 or until the last movie is “Gone Baby Gone.”

I hope you can come by on Saturday or anytime during the next couple of weeks, share some stories, visit with friends, pick up a few movies and celebrate with us the closing of… “The Greatest Video Store in the World” …(a young customer).

Staci L. Dickerson
