Sunset for Sunset: Another Idaho video store set to close

The number of video stores in Idaho continues to dwindle.

After the closure earlier this summer of Video Memories left Boise without a place to rent new releases – another store further north is closing up shop.

Sunset Video on Idaho 55 in McCall decided to call it quits.

Signs in the window tout the closure – and note the store will stay open to liquidate its stock of movies. A posting on Facebook indicates they hope to stay open through the end of August.

In April, when Video Memories noted it would close, the Sunset folks posted on Facebook lamenting the closure.

“That’s too bad.🙁This was a pretty nice store. Though we can feel his pain. Head over and help support your local business,” they wrote.

Sunset had a bit of a niche in a resort town where many folks may not have access to their Netflix or HBO Go accounts — but even that wasn’t enough to keep things running.

Sunset is the second McCall business in recent weeks to pull up stakes. Si Bueno Mexican Restaurant will close this week after more than 40 years in business.
