So long, old friend!
A lot of businesses, from restaurants to hotel chains, have been forced to close down, no thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
And now, it has claimed another victim: our childhood VCD/DVD chain.
Massive clearance sale
Popular video retailer Speedy Video has announced that they will be closing down all their outlets in the country after being in the business for three decades.
They made the announcement on their official Facebook page on Saturday (13 June):
“Dear customers, our company are sadly [sic] to announce that we are going to close down all of our outlets soon.
“All outlets currently are having closing down sales. Please come and visit us to enjoy the last promotions!
“Thank you for your support during all these year [sic]. Please share the post for us,” the brand said in the post.
As a last hurrah, Speedy Video has listed down the 14 outlets that will be throwing massive clearance sales, with selected titles in Bluray format going for as low as RM10:
Speedy Video first started its operations in 1989, and they quickly became the go-to store for all our movie needs.
During its heyday, Speedy Video had 92 stores nationwide.
On top of that, they also had the sole rights to home releases from major Hollywood studios such as 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures.
Thank you for the memories, Speedy Video! We will definitely miss walking down your aisles and browsing through your selection of movies.
