Plano Man Keeping Blockbuster Alive
54-year-old David Carrera is supporting the last remaining Blockbuster store in Bend, Ore.Sean Benesch/Unsplash. Before the days of streaming, physical renting was a popular activity on a Friday night. The video rental place that became a popular destination was Blockbuster. There was a man from Plano that was one of the first to enter Blockbuster when it opened its doors in October 1985. Showing his love for Blockbuster, he still has his membership card from the original store in Medallion Center.
