      I actually have one store by my house called star video, which is the exact same thing as blockbuster but with more modern DVDs and videogames, now that I look at it I think it used to be a blockbuster
      Anyway great video, and great animation

    I found a Blockbuster in 2016 when I was on vacation in Oregon. It was either in Sandy or Gresham, I can't remember but it was a legit Blockbuster store. People were still renting movies and games from it. It was weird to see, out of place but kinda cool. I've never heard of Bend but maybe it's just a really small place close to there or it's wrong or there are two of them.

    They also tried doing the Redbox thing everyone seems to forget about that or maybe it just wasn’t around everywhere. I remember it was in Walmart’s and then m everywhere else had Redbox, but then eventually Walmart switched over to Redbox too and that was it for blockbuster.

    I mean, chances are Enron would have scammed them out the ass so I don't think the deal was _that_ good

    For those who don't know, Enron was found to have manipulated accounting documents to make it seem like their growth was massive when in reality they provided no services at all.

    In Canada, we didnt have Blockbuster. But, we did have the same kind of store made by Videotron. As a kid, I used to go to these stores all the time, I probably rented about 30 games on the wii and more than 50 movies there. Seeing all these locations getting shut down was, to some extent, understanding but also very saddening since I went there so many times. But, at least we still have the memories and I'll be able to tell my grandkids about them.
