Fans of 90s nostalgia might be interested to know that the world’s last remaining Blockbuster is now listed on Airbnb.
The store, which is located in Bend in Oregon, is opening its door for an ‘end of summer sleepover’ later this month and is offering three one-night stays for up to four people.
Photos on Airbnb show a cosy little living room set-up has been added to the store, complete with a massive TV and a couch that folds out into a bed.
The rental’s description explains the lucky folks who book in will be handed to the keys to the entire store and can stay up as late as they like bingeing movies.
There’s even some retro snacks on offer if you’re feeling peckish – what more could you ask for, eh?
It reads: “Whether you want to stay up until sunrise or pass out on the couch, we’ve created the perfect space complete with a pull-out couch, bean bags and pillows for you to cosy up with ‘new releases’ from the ’90s.
“Crack open a two-litre of Pepsi before locking into a video game, charting your future in a game of MASH, or watching movie after movie.
“But be wary of reciting, ‘Bloody Mary’ in the staff bathroom off of the break room, as you just may summon the ghost rumoured to haunt the store.
“And help yourself to some NERDS, Raisinets and popcorn (heavy on the butter), but make sure you save room for a couple slices.”
Sadly, the bookings, which take place on 18, 19 and 20 September, are only open to Deschutes County residents.
Manager Sandi Harding explained that she decided to put the store on Airbnb in response to ‘uncertain times’ for the business due to the pandemic.
She wrote: “Not much has changed at our store – not even our prices – and that’s just how we like it! We think of ourselves as a family, and that includes everyone from the global travellers who come to visit, to the lifelong friends and couples who first met as Blockbuster employees.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has been a test of our community unlike any other, so we decided to list this stay to keep this tradition alive during these uncertain times.”
