BEND, OR -- the Blockbuster Video in Bend will soon be the last in the country. The video rental chain filed for bankruptcy in 2010, but a few holdout franchisees were able to remain, mostly in rural areas where internet service is spotty. 

 

A year ago, there were still 10 locations left: one in Texas, three in Oregon - including Bend and Redmond - and six in Alaska. But, in recent months, most of those slowly folded. The Redmond store closed in February
 
The final two Alaska stores are slated to close Monday, leaving just Bend, where management says they have no plans to close anytime soon.
