Seen Better Days

This empty store was obviously a victim of a combination of bad economic times and the convenience, price and availability of online video options.

Yep. The first time I ever heard of Netflix, I thought, "well, there goes Blockbuster." And all the rest, too.

It is sad to see businessnes closed up. I often wonder how the owner feels.

It's a pity. I love renting DVDs and this kind of store I miss a lot here.I imagine it's a kind of Blockbuster, however...it's a pity that it's empty .
Have a nice week

The video shops are closing down everywhere.

I'm guilty of using Netflix! Even when we lived close to a Blockbuster. Convenience usually wins.

Ours just closed here too. I am guilty also of using Netflix and I like it, especially now that you can get instant movies through your Wii or whatever device you have. I'd go into Hollywood Video and it would be over $4 per movie and you'd have to wait for New Releases often.

Hollywood Video was headquartered in my town. When they went out of business for good ... we lost hundreds of local jobs. Too bad they weren't looking ahead. I hear Blockbuster is going bankrupt as well. Sigh.
