Nope! We used to have several in my area, but they've all gone the way of the dinosaur. I get it, but it's kinfd of a shame, I sort of miss the experience of going and picking things out.

The Hastings in Spokane closed quite a while ago.............good riddance, that store was very unimpressive and that is putting it very mildly.

There is an old video store in my area that closed down recently. It's strange to see the video return slot on the outside of the store, as well as the standing cases where the videos were displayed. It bring back memories of the 80s and 90s.

In more ways than one!

If Net Neutrality goes, it's not a point of just going back to the old way of getting our entertainment because that way no longer exists.

If it goes, we will either have to take what they are selling or be left with nothing.
