Dhillon Video was founded by Balvinder Dhillon. In the 1970's Balvinder Dhillon landed in Halifax, Canada after leaving his family back home in Punjab to make a better living in a more stable part of the world. Life was tough because He didn't know the language and he lived with a couple of his friends in an apartment in Rex dale, Ontario. He found a good job in Chrysler parts plant in Brampton and started to make his living. After a few months Mr. Dhillon senior saved up enough money to buy a Beta max. He and his friends would buy Bollywood movies and enjoy them on a TV. Shortly after he would get calls from his friends to borrow the beta-max and of course he loaned it to them. Afterwards he realized he could make some extra cash on the side by renting the Beta-max to friends and charge money. Months passed and inventory grew, Mr. Dhillon had at least 5 beta-max machines which he rented to people for the weekend. To increase revenue he started putting up hand written advertisements in his apartment laundry room and at his work place. After months passed he was making more money renting Beta-max machines then his own factory job. So he quit and never looked back. Dhillon Video brand spanned across the world several stores across Canada, India, and the USA and started branching off to what ever technology was next VCR, DVD, Blue-ray, USB, Streaming etc.
