A photo next from just before the Millennium and before the shop fronts were all standardised to a dark green colour. Who remembers Clyde Star Video shop? As the popularity of videos waned, Clyde Star started renting DVDs and branched out into grocers, newsagents and stationery. However, the rise of sky tv soon put an end to rental of videos and the shop at 233 Glasgow Road, Blantyre closed shortly after.

Just remembered when writing this, there was a four digit membership number given to customers and of course this shop had already moved from a former location on Stonefield Road. What more can you tell me about Clydestar?
