While the rest of the country watched Blockbuster locations shut their doors yea…

Written by

Whereas the rest of the nation watched Blockbuster locations shut their doorways years previously, Alaska held on. Ensuing from pricey net and restricted cable selections, Blockbuster survived the place others died. Nonetheless with the rise of streaming suppliers like Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go, the tip was inevitable. Closing week, the ultimate two Alaska outlets launched the time has come to close down. 😢

We these days visited the Fairbanks location and spoke with Kelli Vey, district supervisor. She’s been with the rental agency since 1991 and fondly remembers the good ol’ days: Friday nights, a packed parking lot, prolonged traces. Nonetheless she’s seen a decline over the previous decade and has been bracing for the tip. We’ll miss you, Blockbuster! Thanks for the recollections.📼👍

  • I think it will come back in some retro form…to me, watching things on tape is both nostalgic and awesome. I mean, polaroids are back! You never know…plus there is that feel and video/sound quality to a videotape. You cant re create it..sometimes people want softer and warmer touches.

  • Fake “Blockbuster” card reason why hotels waive my “incidental deposit” 🤣 that son of fun required a background and credit check 😝 “I’m no trouble I promise” x “yeah we believe you” 🤧
