Video Difference is one of the few independently owned shops that has consistently withstood the onslaught of increased giant corporate presence throughout the years. In Halifax, there’s a Blockbuster on the same block and a Rogers across the street, but you’ve eschewed those chains for good old VD, five years running. Their DVD supply keeps growing, but not at the expense of those who are still running on two heads and a strip of videotape. And they’ve got that inter-store drop-off program now, too. All proof that service isn’t, in fact, dead.
