Network Video owner Josh Mudford said this was the first time he was considering closing the store despite the rapid closure of video rentals in Australia.

& # 39; I had no confidence in entering into a new lease, given the state of affairs & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail Australia.

Mr. Mudford said he was able to keep the company going in a digital age because of regulars coming in and renting titles every week.

He said dedicated members did not take the news about the closure of the store well.

& # 39; They are upset and some do not know what they are going to do, and that is quite shocking, & # 39; said Mr. Mudford.

& # 39; There have been some tears from the children in the store. We're sorry we couldn't keep the doors open. & # 39;

Many users on social media took the last standing video library.

& # 39; Sad to see it close, wish you all the best, I wish we could all rewind, & # 39; he wrote.

& # 39; Ahhh yes great memories of hiring a few videos & microwave popcorn, & # 39; wrote another.

One added: & # 39; So pathetic. What about people who can't use computers or have a wireless connection for Netflix etc. & # 39;

Mr Mudford has been running the video rental for more than a decade, although the store has been under different names and owners since the mid-1980s.
