  • Did you know the last Blockbuster in America is in Bend, Oregon? In 2004, the company went from over 9,000 locations worldwide to exactly one in America. But in this streaming age, is there anything we can learn from Blockbuster? We traveled to Oregon to find out.Subscribe: http://goo.gl/G5RXGsLike The Verge on Facebook: https://goo.gl/2P1aGcFollow on Twitter: https://goo.gl/XTWX61Follow on Instagram: https://goo.gl/7ZeLvXRead More: http://www.theverge.comCommunity guidelines: http://bit.ly/2D0hlAvSubscribe to Verge Science on YouTube, a new home base for our explorations into the future of science: http://bit.ly/2FqJZMl

    They should never close that Blockbuster. It should be a museum

    I would rather have a local Blockbuster than Netflix. There isn’t much I watch or like on Netflix. I miss that interaction, getting snacks, grabbing
    movies I wasn’t expecting and even walking out with a game.

    When basic human interaction becomes nostalgic

    This guys is absolutely right. Blockbuster and other video rental stores like Hollywood video did have a specific smell.

    Ok this looks bigger and more dedicated staff than what the average blockbuster had back in the day.
    Basically it's an independent video store with a corporate logo.

    I missed Blockbuster the minute it closed down. I always thought RedBox and Netflix and Hulu were weak compared to Blockbuster. It just doesn't compare.
