Ah, the good old days. Does anyone else miss having Blockbuster and Hollywood Video Stores or is that just me? It's crazy to see how much has changed and how fast everything has changed.

If you're a millennial, you've had quite the journey growing up — going from no internet to everything being done via the internet — including streaming and watching movies.

But it's fun to reminisce about the times when we could go into an actual Blockbuster Video Store to rent movies, and how Netflix first started by sending DVDs in the mail – but that’s definitely not the case anymore.

And it’s crazy to think that now these kinds of stores don’t even exist. However, I think there's one more Blockbuster still around... It's called The Last Blockbuster and it's located in Bend, Oregon. A quick Google search says it's open every day from 10:30am-9:00pm.

Thinking about all of this got me wondering...

Now that all of Boise's Blockbuster Video Stores are permanently closed, what businesses took their place?
