Today in history: First 'Blockbuster' store opened
On this day in 1985, the first Blockbuster video store rental opened in Dallas, Texas.
Blockbuster was founded by David Cook, who at the time had owned a computer software business. However, it wasn't until 1988 that the video store truly became a sensation when it became America's number one leading video rental store.
Take a look at Blockbuster through the years:
For the next 25 years, Blockbuster became the go-to source for all your VHS needs. Except when you made the trip and found out someone already rented your movie...that was the absolute worst!

In honor of the opening of Blockbuster, below is a rough guide of our thoughts when we visiting Blockbuster.
1.) Today's the day! You are going to Blockbuster and you are going to rent your fav movie. Nothing can go wrong.
2.) You pull up to the store and there is literally nothing that can ruin this moment for you.
3.) You walk in and head straight for the Disney Classics section because you are renting "The Lion King" for the 9th time.
4.) You get to the section and find out someone has already rented it and try to play it cool.
5.) You suck it up and decide to go with your second choice and equally as much a classic: "Jumanji."
6.) You're about to get in line and try not to be too distracted by the endless amounts of candy, because otherwise, this will happen.
7.) Finally, you get to the front of the line, hand them your Blockbuster card and are on your way home!
It's safe to say, this was a normal occurrence for any Blockbuster card holder. Oh, to walk through a Blockbuster again...those were the the days!
