This Video Store In Oregon Is The Last Of Its Kind On The Entire Planet
Back in the 1980s, video rental stores were all the rage. You could walk into a little strip-mall storefront and peruse thousands of VHS titles, then go home and watch at your convenience. Blockbuster Video emerged as the king of all video rental shops, but now there’s just one store left on the entire planet…and it’s right here in Oregon.
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/
