Remember 15 years ago when we all drove to Blockbuster to rent VHS movies and just hoped that they still had copies of the new release we wanted to see? Me neither.
Blockbuster’s public demise in 2013 shook up the world of in-home entertainment. It also signaled the fall of an industry giant that once seemed too big to fail. Sound familiar?
If you see an eerie familiarity between the decline of video stores and the local church, you aren’t alone. Blockbuster was hurt in part because of their own failure to innovate. They were also outdone by a little company they had a chance to buy only years earlier.
You may have heard of it. It’s called Netflix.
