Re: Clerks: Quick Stop and RST Video

Well...being bored, I decided to google 58A and didn't come up with anything. I did however find the same question being asked on the View Askew message boards wayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in August 2001. Didn't get a lot of replies, except for the reference to the Clerks Holiday Special issue where Santa sets up shop. No one knows. I'm starting to think an office is the best bet. I did tweet Kevin this question. No reply though yet.

Yeah it's the office. I had a chance to check it out last month.

Isn't it true that RST video is closed? They let people in for tours, from what I hear. But the actual video store/rental part of it is no more.

Given the way video rental stores are these days, yeah I suspect it's closed as a video store but must be used as something perhaps along the lines as a "tourist trap" for fans of Smith's work.

I know almost every line from that movie, and never noticed the 3rd door. Damn I ain't too quick.

I have to imagine the video store is closed. I just moved, but 2 or 3 in my old town closed in the past few years. With on demand, Netflix, and those Redbox kiosks, video stores are kinda obsolete.

Re: Clerks: Quick Stop and RST Video

It was a pretty crappy video store to begin with. I worked at a mom and pop place like that (but quite a bit nicer, bigger, and pretty much the only game in town) back in highschool for a short time and it went under years ago.

Would make sense if they have maintained it to some extent as a Clerks/Askewniverse roadside attraction though.

Well, yeah, with Randal working their goading you into lashing out at him so he can revoke your membership it couldn't be a great place to get movies.
