Advantages: Many DVDs at low price
Disadvantages: Limited numbers on some DVDs
Even though finances are tightening, some people are still looking at ways of getting their hands on a DVD or CD to keep them entertained. The only problem being that some DVDs and CDs at shops like HMV may be too much and may only wait until they have a sale. One alternative is to browse the Internet, which sometimes may be successful but then you're left waiting for days. These factors have seen a rise in pre-owned items, which has been around for a few years with computer games. Now, a new store has set up to offer people the chance to buy pre-owned DVDs and CDs but without having to wait for the item to arrive in the post.
That's Entertainment is a new business, which has set up selling a mixture of pre-owned items that have been traded in along with some new releases. The items are reasonably priced with some DVDs priced at £1.99 or £2.99 and boxsets from £6. Some DVD's/CD's can be bought as a multibuy, where they're on sale at 3 for £5. The DVDs in stock are mainly films from old releases upto recent times. They also have a collection of TV shows, comedies and stand-up too. Some of the DVDs in stock may only have one copy available in store, although some DVDs may have two, three or even more available. This depends on what has been traded in. They also have a collection of old games for PS2, PS3, X-Box and PC, which means they're also taking some of the competition from old pre-owned stores like Grainger Games and Gamestation.
The company also has a website for those who may prefer the browsing of items from the comfort of their own home, allowing you to buy CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray DVDs and games. For those who prefer to search in store, the company has several locations mainly in the north of England, including major cities like Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle. The company also have stores in parts of the Midlands and in other major cities such as Glasgow and Cardiff.
Summary: A cheap way to stay entertained
