Or if they were disposable and sold for $2 - $3 dollars. The one and only
reason this is a failure is that the price is too high. Make it cheap and
people will buy it.

$6.99??? that's more expensive than PPV.

Yeah, and these people will be going back to the grocery store even more
often to avoid late fees.

And on the return trip, they might pick up a carton of cigarettes and/or
a case of beer.

These grocery store managers aren't stupid.

Or it's the only stop... friends of mine in Nederland Colorado, the grocery is
all they have (no wait... there IS a video store) but they have an account at
the grocery video store... Blockbuster hasn't made it that far into the hils
yet I guess.
