Wild and Woolly Video will close on March 23 because of the "current state of the video industry" and owner Todd Brashear's desire to become a certified Pilates instructor, Brashear announced Monday in an email to customers and others.
The Bardstown Road video rental store closes on the 18th anniversary of its opening.
