Four Star Video trying to raise money to relocate

MADISON, Wis. - Four Star Video Co-Op needs the community's help to move to a new location and stay in service. 

According to the fundraising website, Four Star's current owners are moving on to other ventures. As a result, Four Star needs to raise $20,000 to move to a new location and "ensure that Four Star's unique collection of 20,000 titles continues to serve the public." 

The page also notes that Four Star has plans for the future that may include reorganizing as a nonprofit organization. 

All donated funds will be held by Arts Wisconsin until the conclusion of the crowdfunding campaign, according to the website. 

The store's minimum goal is $10,000, and funds can be accepted until Aug. 29. 

As of Wednesday afternoon, Four Star had raised nearly $1,400. 

In April, Four Star cut back its hours to 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. and closed one day a week for "the first time our 34 years of operation," according to its website.
