Columbia House

Columbia House To Return ?

Apparently the investor that purchased the remnants of Columbia House for US$1.5 million has told The Wall Street Journal that he is planning on reviving the club to take advantage of the resurgence of vinyl.

Filmed Entertainment Inc. had filed for Chapter 11 protection on August 10th, 2015 and has had some of their assets purchased by John Lippman, the CEO of Filmed Entertainment Inc.

Details on the new version of the club are light but a site will be appearing at columbiahouserecordclub.com in 2016, although I seriously doubt Canadians will be able to take advantage of any initial offer.

Columbia House Files For Bankruptcy

Filmed Entertainment Inc. filed for bankruptcy in Manhattan yesterday and wishes to sell Columbia House’s remaining assets, specifically the DVD Club that was still operating in the United States.

Columbia House had closed their Canadian operations in December 2010 and stopped selling music in the states to concentrate on the sale of film and television series on DVD. Click here for their August 10th, 2015 press release.
