Fulton's Family Video is one of hundreds closing permanently.

The closure of the company's remaining stores was announced Tuesday in a letter from Keith Hoogland, CEO of Highland Ventures, LTD, the owner of Family Video.

"The impact of COVID-19, not only in foot traffic but also in the lack of movie releases, pushed us to the end of an era," Hoogland wrote.

Over the years, the Fulton location has contributed to community charity efforts, in addition to offering movie rentals, video games and CBD products.

The chain outlived Blockbuster and other competitors, but the COVID-19 pandemic has proved to formidable of a challenge.

"I am extremely thankful to our employees and customers that were instrumental in Family Video's success," Hoogland wrote. "Without you, we would not have been the last man standing in our industry."

The Futlon location will close once all items are sold — everything is currently for sale.

The company will continue owning and managing the building.
