Additional Information

Stars To Go, Inc. was a video rental service company which specialized in putting rental kiosks in convenience stores such as 7-11 and Circle K in the late 1980s. Employees of the store often had wearable memorabilia from the company as well as films that were upcoming as an advertisement for their video rental service. Much like modern day Red Box, the Stars To Go kiosk would allow customers to rent a movie without a special trip to another store. Stars To Go, Inc. would see its market share drop considerably after Blockbuster Video Stores went public in 1987. This coupled with the stock market crash known as Black Monday of that same year would result in the company struggling through the end of the decade. In 1989, Stars To Go, Inc. started selling assets.
