Local DVD Rentals

Book Stop

3 Market St, Tavistock PL19 0DA, UK – 01822 617244

Nice little bookshop with very helpful staff.

Great find. Bought naval book which was not available at various other shops I'd visited. Recommended.

Tavistock Video

28A West St, Tavistock PL19 8JY, UK – 01822 616975

Very good selection. Friendly service and fine ambience.

It's great to still find a video shop (OK not actual videos but DVDs and Blurays!) in this age of online streaming and downloads. Particularly great for people in areas with slow internet connections, where streaming just isn't an option. For such a tiny shop Tavistock Video have an impressive collection of titles, including many of the latest releases. I want this store to remain in Tavi so we should support it as much as we possibly can!

Oxfam

83-84 West St, Tavistock PL19 8AQ, UK

It sells some new fairtrade and seasonal products which can be nice and useful. The thing that annoys me with Oxfam is the way items are arranged by colour. It makes the place look chaotic and finding anything a chore to the point I generally don't bother. In my opinion arranging products by type is more logical since I don't have the time or inclination to browse the entire store.

Great branch of Oxfam with really good stuff. There's also a separate Oxfam Bookshop with some fantastic bargains
