Auto industry prepares for used-vehicle future
As many dealers have said, the new-vehicle business is the only department they can't fully control.

Automakers largely dictate the dynamic of the new-vehicle market, dealers say.

And why wouldn't lenders and dealership groups have an eye toward the used-vehicle space as new-vehicle profit margins continue to tighten and new-car and new-truck prices continue to rise?

The Last Video Chain: The Inside Story Of Family Video And Its $400 Million Owner
Family Video has taken a different approach. Instead of accepting discounted movies in exchange for agreements to split revenue, as Blockbuster did, it has opted to buy films outright and keep 100% of rental proceeds, which has paid off in the long run. Hoogland has also kept his stores entirely company-owned, and he keeps costs down by making many of the items needed for new locations in-house—everything from shelving to point-of-sale software. Most important, though, the company owns just about all the real estate underpinning its stores. As a result, Hoogland has been able to adapt now that sales are beginning to fall. He has shrunk the square footage of many of the video stores, put up drywall and leased out space to other companies, like Subway and H&R Block.

He has also experimented with ventures of his own, using his properties to launch 11 fitness centers, an electronics-repair chain called Digital Doc and 149 Marco's Pizza franchises (making him the brand's single largest franchisee). The businesses are managed under the umbrella of Highland Ventures—"Hoogland" means "Highland" in Dutch. Family Video still accounts for nearly 90% of the parent company's $450 million in annual revenue, and Forbes estimates the chain's real estate is worth as much as $750 million.
