Red Hot Video on Lincoln is having a "blowout" on all adult videos in anticipation of their closing. Adult DVD sales are down by 50 percent from 2009 according to Adult Video News, with free "content" on the internet taking the blame.

I'm surprised this place was able to stay in business until 2012.  Between their limited selection and poor pricing to the other cheaper and convenient options (Red Box, Netflix, etc.), you'd think Red Hot Video would go the way of the dodo by 2007.  I guess the porno rentals was the crux keeping this establishment afloat.  Thanks to the internet, there's no need to rent that sort of material.  It's all free now.  The internet has ruined yet another fine social institution.

Ok so after an entire YEAR of advertising they are going to close, they finally closed.  There are a growing stack of boxes inside now.

 

Anyone know what is going in there?

Just joking, obviously. I'll ask around and see what I can find out.
