Texas man finds one of the last remaining Blockbuster video stores.

What happened to the DVD rental industry? With the recent news of Hastings going out of business, it was a shock to see that somebody, somewhere, was able to find a real life, open for business, Blockbuster video store. I thought they had closed their doors long ago. Come to find out, there are still stores open for business here in the Lonestar state. But where, where can I find a vintage Blockbuster video store? Unfortunately, not anywhere around here. However, if you travel to El Paso or south Texas, you might find a Blockbuster video store still chugging along. From the looks of the video, it doesn’t look as if it will be shutting its doors anytime soon.

Speaking of video and game rentals, how many of you frequent Redbox? Kind of hard to believe that a video game and DVD vending machine killed an entire industry of industry. What’s even cooler about Redbox, they sell used games and DVD’s for cheap. Next time you go, check it out!

Maybe after it’s all said and done, we can travel across the state of Texas and find our beloved Hastings still pushing film memorabilia, DVD’s, and video games.
