My husband and I have been customers of Avid Video for 5 or 6 years. We have had great service from the owner the entire time. We always purchase the pay in advance package and giving us films for $2.50 each. Several times... (more)

Granted, the owner has great knowledge of film, but lacks social graces. I have seen him bruch off customers and get into unnecessary arguments. He seems to have a huge chip on his shoulder. Now in the new space on Perry... (more)

I rent movies here all the time and have never had a problem, either with finding what I wanted or playing any of the discs. The owner is always there and, while he seems to be a pretty quiet guy, if you take the time to talk... (more)

After Visart Video (a great indie chain in the area) closed down, I turned to Avid. Mistake! The guy who owns (and works at the place) is the rudest little troll you'll ever meet IRL, and the mopey girl who helps him isn't... (more)
