You've heard of Record Store Day, right? Well, now independent video stores get their day, too. Saturday, Oct. 15 is to be the first Independent Video Store Day — a chance for VHS and DVD buffs to celebrate the local stores that thrive "on customer service, eclectic selections and a voracious dedication to the media," as the event's website puts it. Those stores are "carving out a niche market, feeding the needs of film lovers looking for something other than the mediocrity spoon-fed to them by mainstream media outlets." Local stores include Orbit DVD, TV Eye and Rosebud Video.
