For families across the United States, driving to the local Blockbuster Video was a Friday night ritual.
At least 10 known Blockbuster stores across the country have managed to stay afloat in the digital age.
However, the largest cluster of Blockbuster stores are not on the mainland, but in Alaska, where dark, long winters and expensive Wi-Fi have helped maintain a core group of loyal customers.
Alaska ranks high in disposable income among the states, due to good-paying jobs, exceptionally low taxes and payments from reinvested oil savings.
Knowing how much Hector loved the store, and how accustomed he was to visiting it as part of his routine, his parents came up with a solution: They decided to create a mini-Blockbuster in their home.
