COMMENTARY: A Love Letter to the World’s Last Blockbuster Video Store
It is with a heavy heart that we must report that the second to last Blockbuster store – located in Western Australia – is shutting its sliding doors for good. After news that the two previous outcast stores in Alaska closed last summer, that leaves only one final remaining Blockbuster video store on the face of the planet.
The final Blockbuster store now resides, nestled in the Cascade Mountains, in Bend, Oregon. A small town with less than 100,000 residents, all of whom are now some of the luckiest human beings in the world. They have the distinct privilege of making their home movie watching decisions at the last Blockbuster.
