The Last Blockbuster On Earth Is Turning A Profit

The Bend, Oregon store is the last of the chain to survive and it isn’t going anywhere. The 15-year general manager, Sandi Harding, says the store is not only a tourist attraction but making money. People from all over the country come to rent movies from them and one of the biggest age groups are millennials.

Harding explains "Everyone assumes that our customers are older, and maybe not as internet savvy, but that's not true for us anymore. Bend is one of the fastest-growing cities in Oregon and we have new people of all ages asking to set up an account, excited, saying, 'Wow,' we don't have Blockbuster where we lived. Now that we're the last, one it's re-energized the hype of coming in and getting a card."

The store is so hot that they hand write five to ten membership cards a day.
