Best of Halifax

Best DVD Rental Store

Video Difference

Those poor runners-up. Blockbuster, feeling the pinch of changing tech and maybe their more limited business model---that is, cookie-cutter franchises offering only the most mainstream entertainment, and good luck findingThe Last Temptation of Christ, or anything potentially controversial---have closed their peninsula stores.

Video Difference is adored by the Halifax insomniacs.
“Super-helpful and friendly staff, no matter what time of day. Even at 2am they'll smile and help you find your movie.”

First Runner-up: Blockbuster (Queen Street)
Second Runner-up: Blockbuster (Quinpool Road)
