Movie Gallery also owns Hollywood Video and and eponymous stores.

We plan to continue to operate the Company without interruption as we work through this challenging period.”

So clearly the word of the day is “challenging” but the company seems to be angling toward an acquisition or merger to overcome those challenges.
