Videoport to Close

Portland Press Herald:  “Videoport, a 28-year-old Portland movie rental store with a fiercely loyal customer base and zealous film buff employees, will close in August and donate its 18,000-title DVD collection to the Portland Public Library. Owner Bill Duggan announced the iconic Old Port store’s closing Wednesday. He said competition from online streaming services and rising costs contributed to his decision. Duggan had been trying to negotiate a new lease for the 4,000-foot space Videoport occupies at 151 Middle St. and the space is being advertised for lease on the Malone Commercial Brokers website.”
