R.I.P Blockbuster. (1985-2014)

Blockbuster, officially Blockbuster LLC and also known as Blockbuster Video, is an American-based provider of home movie and video game rental services. In 2004, it had its peak with over 9,094 stores across the globe. However, from the late-2000s to the present, many Blockbuster Video Stores were closing down, leaving the one last store that is still opened in Bend, Oregon.

This page is dedicated to Blockbuster LLC, and its closing stores.

Be grateful that you were born before the whole company dies. I was born in 2001, the right year when Blockbuster was still around. :(

R.I.P Blockbuster. This was the best shop to get/rent movies and TV shows physically. At least there are other physical media stores out there over the world including second-hand ones. But this doesn't mean digital media is bad in all because we can choose our own preference and treat both media equally.

Was there a reason to why they closed the stores?

Poor business practices and being rendered obsolete thanks to Netflix.

I know I'm probably alone in this, but I think Blockbuster needs to make a comeback in some shape or form, like, maybe, add some aspects to the stores that could help them survive again and give people a reason to go back to them.

I like some streaming services and all, but I think rental stores like this were much better, not just because of nostalgia, but because there's lots of things that they have that streaming platforms don't, like physical media (which I prefer over digital), snacks and drinks, merchandise, and magazines.
