Employees buy out State Street video store

Employees of Four Star Video Heaven, 449 State St., have purchased the business from owner Lisa Brennan. The employees were able to complete the buyout with the help of a successful crowdsourcing campaign that netted them $7,680, enough for a down payment. Brennan announced in February that she’d be leaving, prompting the employees to launch a financing campaign through Indiegogo. They took ownership on Aug. 1.
