If you are under the age of 25 you almost certainly have no idea what was so appealing about going to a movie rental store. There was no guarantee they’d have the movie you actually wanted to rent; if you forgot to return a film on time you had to take out a small loan to pay off the late fee; and half the time you left without a movie at all because your friend Joshua wasn’t “in the mood to watch a comedy.”And it was glorious.
So hold on Bend Blockbuster! You and our memories are now all that remain of one our favorite stores. Which is why you might want to reinforce your roof.
