PETALING JAYA: The manager of the MidValley Speedy Video store remained upbeat about its business outlook this week, despite the wide availability of movies and TV shows conveniently streaming over the internet.
“We’re seeing strong signals the DVD retail business is turning around,” explained optimistic store Manager, Boon Chai,
“Last week, someone walked in and bought a copy of ‘John Wick2’ on DVD for RM49 instead of watching it on iFlix.”
“We also sold a Wonder Woman DVD in 3D for RM79. A mother even promised she’d be back next week to get Pixar’s Coco for her kids instead of joining Netflix.”
“It looks like the Internet streaming bubble is about to burst. Lucky too, because we just got extra copies of ‘Greatest Showman.’”
