I’m looking after a friend’s house and dog in quaint residential suburb of Harfield Village for a few days. I really like the village feel about it – friendly neighbours, easy transport, restaurants and bistros.
This morning I went looking for a deli to grab breakfast but it was still too early for any of the restaurants to be open so I popped in to one of Barry Hilton’s franchised DVD stores four blocks away from home.
Basically, you login to their website and pre-book your DVD title, add it to your cart, and check-out. You can go and pick up your DVD, or they’ll deliver it to you, free of charge (terms and conditions apply).
I like this concept mostly because you avoid disappointment in driving to the store to discover that the DVD that you really want has been booked by someone else. Also, browsing online gives you the time to find exactly what you want before you even get there. The stores are modern and clean, and offer helpful service.
