Did you know Grangeville now has a DVD Express? It’s kind of like Red Box, only not. It’s located at Zip Trip and you can rent movies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can even reserve a movie through an app on your phone.

Hailey and I made a special trip to town Easter night to check it out after seeing Heather Newson post about it on Facebook. Ben at Zip Trip showed us a few things about how to use it and we even scored a couple of free movie codes. This is a great alternative for when you need a movie in the middle of the night, have exhausted your Netflix and K&R Video is closed.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 30, 2 p.m., at Soltman Center for the Grangeville Farmers’ Market Meet, Greet and Eat event.
