What is believed to be the last independent movie-rental business in Ohio is closing its cash register for good April 30.
Video Central, a nearly 30-year staple in northwest Columbus, will spend the next month liquidating its inventory, owner Hannah Groah said.
Groah said she was told by her landlord April 5 that she had 30 days to clear out of the storefront, 1299 Bethel Road.
“It’s not bad business; it’s just business,” said Groah, who has owned the store since 2014. “It’s unfortunate.”
She said she has no plans to relocate.
“We’d rather go out on top instead of going to a new location and peter out,” she said.
