A Few Lucky Oregonians Will Get To Sleep Overnight In The World’s Last Blockbuster Video This Fall
Do you remember the good old days when your mom would take you and your friends to Blockbuster Video so you could choose a few movies for your sleepover? Most people will never have that experience again, since the company closed its stores in 2014. There’s just one remaining Blockbuster Video in the entire world, and it’s located right here in Bend.
The owner of the store is offering three overnight stays to locals this fall, and if you live nearby you’re going to want to see if you can get in on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step back in time to the 1990s.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Do you qualify for one of these overnight stays at Blockbuster Video? If so, make sure to check out the Airbnb.com listing for more details!
If you aren’t one of the three lucky people to get a reservation for the night, you can still support the world’s last Blockbuster Video. Check out its website, and shop its online store for Blockbuster Video swag (most of the swag offered in the shop is made locally in Bend). You can also stop by to say hello the next time you’re in the area. The store will keep its 1990s living room set up for awhile so you can check it out, too.
