I agree with you on the mom & pop video stores. I miss those like hell.
But I don`t agree as far as Suncoast & Sam Goody are concerned. The hell with those places, they were overpriced anyway and their selection was nothing special.
FYE pretty much sucks too. At least they have a used section with reasonable prices.
Besides the fact that their name is stupid as hell (For Your Entertainment? What?), they had frickin` Death Cab For Cutie in the 'punk' section.
