LASALLE – There’s nothing that screams yesteryear like a video rental store, and one LaSalle resident is bringing a bit of that nostalgia back to the community. Take a movie, leave a movie is the concept of the “Free Blockbuster” kiosks that are popping up all over the country. LaSalle resident and local radio personality Steve Pulaski, is bringing that movie magic to the Grove Center, the first “Free Blockbuster” kiosk in North Central Illinois.
“I think streaming services compared to video stores are weightless experiences, ” said Pulaski. “You don’t hold the DVD or movie in your hand, there’s no physical contact anymore. Free blockbuster is a personal experience for the community to enjoy”
The reminiscent movement is part of a bigger mission with franchise locations making their debuts all over the United States. The Grove Center “Free BlockBuster” Kiosk will be ready for folks to enjoy by Monday at 1055 6th Street, LaSalle. You can follow all the action on Instagram @freeblockbusterlasalle.
