Do you love the fact we have a fun and funky and totally indie video and music store in town where you can rent movies, get CDs, buy guitar picks and talk movies with the very smart owner and staff? (And what other neighborhood video store has such a deep -- it's four shelves -- surf section, or even a surf section at all?)
Then head over there and rent or buy something because Zuma Beach Video & Music at the Point Dume shopping center is struggling. As has happened in so many of our local shopping centers, the rents have spiked and the mom 'n' pop stores are getting forced out. (Point Dume Chinese is leaving in a few months.) And Zuma Video, pushed by the new owners to a less-than-stellar location on the second floor -- the very same people who killed The Dume Room (a couple more pix here) -- could be next.
