good morning mam/sir

i would like to ask some question regarding your beautiful establishment, is it ok to have a reservation in renting a cd? and i have and i have a report, that one of your outlet her in mindanao in particular place in digos city, your personnel her ay napakatamad kapag mag inquire kami if may available ba na cd na bago, and then hendi na sila tumitingin pa sa computer o i check nila kung may bago ba o wala, diretso na nilang sasabehin na wala, at they are hiding the new cd,s in their drawer, and i think their manager have something to do with it but,walang ginagawa ang manager.

hope you will take action in our report
thanks. . . .

Hi! Thanks for your continuous patronage of video city and thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. As a rule is usually a first come first serve basis and customer preferences should be avoided. I will bring this matter to the owners video city and I hope they could stop this practice.

Thanks very much for visiting my blog and please come again :-)

Hi! I just have questions regarding your franchise offering. Where do we get our supplies of CD, VHS and DVDs? I am currently running a video rental here in abroad and I thought of putting up one in the Philippines through franchising. Can I use other suppliers for my store? I shop my DVDs from Amazon USA and they are Region 1 and ORIGINAL, can I still continue doing so while under your franchise?

Hello there. From what I have learned. Video city gets their VCD's and DVD's from local film and movie distributors like VIVA entertainment. And I don't think videos bought internationally like Amazon will be allowed during the course of the franchise.

hello,
question lang po kung anu po ba talaga un rules nyo sa pagrerent ng mga cd d2 sa store nyo sa lebertad..?kasi po di lang once ko na experience na pag bago labas yung cd ok lang po ba talaga un sasabihin nila na nakareserve?dalawang beses na po kc ako bumalik ganun lang po un nagiging sitwasyun..at pag talagang bago un cd lagi ganun..ok lang naman po sana sakin kc malapit lang naman ako sa store..pero hindi po ba unfair sa iba?baka naman po kailangan pa ng another charge para nakapagreserve?ganun po ba?o anu ba kailangan para makapagpareserve?naiisip ko baka kailangan maging close muna sa mga empleyado nyo o kailangan may extra gift?

Isa po ako sa mga customer ng VCT na malayo pa sa store nila kaya syempre para hindi mabale wala ang pagpunta ko sa store before ako pumunta tumatawag na agad ako sa kanila para magpareserve 1 hr ang byahe at kung hindi ako magpapareserve ng gusto kong movies mababale wala lang punta ko at kakaunti lng marerent ko. Logi pa sa pagod, kaya ang ginagawa ko nagpapareserve ako at sure ko naman kinukuha at sa loob ng dalawang taon hindi ako sumira sa kanila na kukuhanin ko pinareserve ko. Kaya ito lang masasabi ko para sa akin na malayo pa ang lugar sa VCT kinailangan ko pa humungi ng advice sa FB nila nag PM ako kung pwede maging member kahit taga ibang lugar ako at dahil doon hindi sila nagkamali na pinagbigyan nila ako at isa ako sa masugid nilang SUKI.

taga Quezon province po ako at minsan sa BATANGAS at LAGUNA pa ako nagrerent imagine mo kung gaano kalayo. Salamat VCT. .
