If you’re like me, you went to Blockbuster to rent movies basically every weekend as a kid/teen/young adult. At one point, there was a store opening up every 17 hours according to MSN. But now, we are down to just one Blockbuster in all of America.

It’s actually not THAT far from us, in Bend, OR. And apparently people from all over the country are visiting the Oregon Blockbuster. But, I wonder if they are like, buying anything to help keep it in business…

The store has no plans to close anytime soon. In fact, the owners say as long as they can pay employees and turn some profit, they’re good. However, if that stops happening, they might turn it into a museum.

Which sounds like it would work considering the tourism boost they have. Just charge people to get in the door and have classic movie snacks to purchase. Now that I wrote that, I kind of really want a place like that to exist. Oh the nostalgia.
