STAMFORD - A Stamford store that opened 26 years ago is now one of the last of its kind.

With the town's support, Critic's Choice Video has been renting videos since 1990.

Stamford native and owner, Wayne Wofsey, says he carries about 11,000 DVDs and a couple thousand VHS tapes.

The store has survived the rise and fall of Blockbuster and has lived through the success of streaming services like Netflix.

Customers say Wofsey's passion for movies and wide range of recommendations for movies keep them coming back for more.


The shop rents all DVDs and VHS tapes for two days for $3.75 each.
