Digiview at Dollar Tree!

About Nothing over 6 bucks each!

Previous Entry Digiview at Dollar Tree! Sep. 13th, 2007 @ 01:39 pm Next Entry
Just a brief note to tell you that at a nearby Dollar Tree I found a number of movies for 50 cents each. These all are Digiview and the copyright is 2004. I'm not going to list titles just because these are the usual public-domain suspects, with an emphasis on general drama titles with some family-friendly stuff and a little action thrown in. Didn't see any cartoons or horror or sci-fi unless they were in a different section and we just didn't find them. So if you don't already have some of the usual movies like "Penny Serenade" or "The Fast and the Furious" at least at my nearby Dollar Tree they're two for a buck!

They had 2 for $1 Digiview DVDs at my local Dollar Tree last Christmas. Picked up about 20 different movies. The best looking one was "The Jackie Robinson Story". The picture quality on that movie was excellent, something I don't se on Digiview DVDs. Haven't seen any Digiview in the past 2 months. I'll try to go to Dollar Tree tomorrow and see what they got.

The rumor is that either Dollar Tree or Family Dollar is getting out of the Dollar DVD business so they are clearing out whatever stock they have laying around. Don't know if that's true or not.

I heard that the 99 Cent Only store had put out their Halloween DVDs. I checked it out and it was the same old PD stuff. I'm afraid the Dollar DVD ship has sailed. The horse has been flogged and flogged and is now dead.

The only label that seems to be digging up new titles is Mill Creek, when they release a new multi-disc box set every so often.

I dunno. Digiview seems to be putting titles out on a regular basis (at least if you live in NJ), and there's always EastWest (shudder). I don't think the Dollar DVD is dead yet--if nothing else, Digiview's contract with WalMart should keep it going for quite a while.*

*If I were a dollar DVD company, I'd make the same deal Digiview did with WalMart with Target or somebody. But that's just me.

PC Treasures is Target's supplier of dollar DVDs.

At least, it was; there has not been anything for awhile. I suppose that the coming month will be the test: if there is not a new shipment of horror movies for Halloween, as there was the last two years, we will know that Target is out of the dollar DVD business.

My local Wal-Mart and one of the local dollar stores that sell Digiview DVDs have not had any new titles from Digiview for almost a year now. Sometimes Wal-Mart will not have a display for the $1 DVDs. I have a feeling that both stores will not have them next year. Too bad, Most of my DVD collection is made up of the dollar DVDs (over 100 of them are from Digiview). Now my local Dollar Tree is selling a few EastWest DVDs, maybe they will start selling more of those.

Update: The local Target has added Halloween-themed items to its dollar section, and there are no DVDs. Oh, well.

Oh, and the Dollar Treee does have some Halloween DVDs, but they are the same double features ("Zany Zombies," "Haunted Houses," etc.) that they carried last year. This suggests a clearing out of the stockroom more than anything else.

Then again: Target and PC Treasures may have skipped Halloween, but they have not abandoned the dollar DVD business, after all. I saw a new batch at my local Target yesterday. They were mostly TV series (standards such as THE LUCY SHOW, THE LONE RANGER, BONANZA, and LONG JOHN SILVER, and also the somewhat less common DAVEY AND GOLIATH and THE MASTER--the Lee Van Cleef/Sho Kosugi series, I think represented for the first time on DVD by actual episodes rather than cobbled-together movies) and cartoons (including a series with a title like "Encyclopedia Britanica International Cartoons").

More signs of life for the dollar DVD: Dollar Tree has got in a batch of Christmas-themed DVDs. Perhaps they are remainders from last year, but I did not recognize them. There are two or three that apparently consist of Christmas carols played over photos of holiday scenes--I suppose the idea is that you leave these playing in the background during parties and family gatherings. There is also a disc containing a half-dozen Christmas-themed episodes of old TV shows--the usual suspects: Jack Benny, Burns & Allen, Red Skelton, etc. Another contains two adaptations of A CHRISTMAS CAROL--the Seymour Hicks film, and an early TV version (from 1949!) introduced by Vincent Price.

I think Family Dollar's getting out of it because my local Family Dollar no longer sells DVDs period.

Well, I was wrong. They don't really have a lot of titles left, but there's a small section in the store where they still have some of the titles they have yet to sell. I picked up Stage Door Canteen and Who Killed Doc Robbin from Digiview and Broadway's Best Volume 1 with Royal Wedding and The Perils Of Pauline from Brentwood.
