Wallace Video celebrates 25th anniversary
Woodburns only video store has reached a milestone.
Wallace Video, located at 1505 N. Pacific Highway, opened for business Sept. 11, 1988, and owner Tim Wallace said the company is still going strong.
Its because weve provided customer service with a smile, he said.
The company, which has six employees, boasts 19,000 movie titles and more than 1,000 video game titles available to rent or buy.
We get newly released movies 28 days before Redbox and Netflix, Wallace pointed out.
For its anniversary, the company has had an ongoing movie sale, including more than 1,000 VHS tapes available for a quarter apiece.
While big box stores have closed their doors, Wallace Video has thrived because of responsible business practices and multiple offerings, including CD, DVD?and game repair.
Every DVD you buy has a lifetime warranty, Wallace said.
The business was started by Tom and Linda Wallace, Tim Wallaces parents, and although he worked for them since 1988, he took over the business in 2000.
Wallace Video has also supported local schools, the library and service organizations.
Its fun being part of the community,?Tim Wallace said. I like the customers and I like watching the movies.
