    I can't help you with how to do the videos since I'm not sure what you want other than to insure that you do them professionally. Don't try and do them yourself and make things worse and ruin your credibility.

    To answer your other question, yes, in house advertising is a good idea and can be very effective to up sell additional products and services.

    There's a local Chinese restaurant I go to that has their TVs play loop advertising for their specials and normal menu items. Always makes my mouth water.

    I'm with Harold... find a professional company to do it. You want to make sure you have great photos and great offers. When you say your store is also a multipurpose wireless store, does that mean cell phones, electronics, etc.?

    The easiest way to do a loop ad is to have the ad on a DVD and the DVD player will auto repeat if you set it to. We have three tv's in our trade show booth and do that. My question would be what you want the videos to show. If it is mostly something like print advertising you might be able to do a power point display.

    If you want to do it yourself Roxio creator is fairly easy to use. I do have Adobe Premier but prefer the Roxio and you can buy it for under $ 100.00. You can embed video, slide shows and photos in your movie and add text and or music as well.

    You can get a DVD player at any WalMart for 60 bucks or so that will work with any tv and of course there are TV's with built in DVD players and they are pretty cheap. You could try a USB stick. I am not sure if it would work or not.

    You might also look into Digital Picture Frames -- many of these can play videos (not just slide shows), although I am not sure about whether they have audio capabilities, too.

    Most of the stores that I see that run those loops have an inexpensive computer hooked up to a TV with a slideshow looping. The computer just needs an HDMI or DVI output.

    I have not seen any digital picture frames with audio capabilities but there may be some. I had posted previously and mentioned that at my trade shows I run 3 TV's with dvd players that loop the video automatically. Well, isn't quite accurate. That is what I did until less than a year ago. I was running three 21" TV's. Not long ago I came across a Groupon deal and bought three 21" tablet computers for about $ 200.00 each. I was hoping to be able to loop the video and use a memory stick or card to store the video. In theory it should have worked but so far I have not been able to get that to work so have been continuing to use the dvd player with the 21" tablet computers. There are a few other large tablet computers available and that could be an option to not needing the dvd player. Of course if running something like a powerpoint presentation worked that would be another way to go with the tablets. If you are wanting something very large in a tv such as something in the 30-60 inch range a tv will be the only option but if somewhere around the 21" or smaller would work then a tablet might be the other option.
