There’s only one Blockbuster left

By Valeria Quintana

PHOENIX – It’s the end of an era. As of next week only one Blockbuster will still be open in the entire country.

Until recently there were three total remaining Blockbuster stores, but two stores in Alaska will be closing their doors forever next week. The last standing Blockbuster is located in Bend, Oregon.

With only one Blockbuster left, I think it’s safe to say it’s time to let go of the past and embrace the future of streaming video. But it still makes us kind of sad.

If you want to see the last remaining dinosaur, er, Blockbuster store, your last hope is in Oregon. 

In recent years Blockbuster stores have vanished across the country. At its peak in 2004, there were more than 9,000 Blockbuster stores in operation.
