Family Video is closing its doors across the United States after 42 years, the company announced Tuesday.

The company has more than 50 locations in Michigan.

“What began as a handful of 500 square foot video rental locations, grew to 800 locations with up to 7,000 square feet of video rental and retail. Surviving 10 years longer than the big 3, Blockbuster, Movie Gallery and Hollywood Video, we are among the few that started with Beta, moved on to VHS and remained a part of the DVD & Blu-Ray Era,” reads a statement from Keith Hoogland, CEO of Highland Ventures LTD.

Hoogland said the stores are closing due to the impact of COVID-19, “not only in foot traffic but also in the lack of movie releases.”

According to its website, Family Video stores will close once all items are sold. Items include DVDs, Blu-rays and shelves.
