Who Rented From This Memorable Place Back In The Day Here in Midland Odessa?
Let's go back in the day. I can remember hitting this place up like crazy in the late 90s early 2000's here in Midland-Odessa. The stores here in the Permian Basin finally closed in 2016, but in its heyday, late 90's and early 2000s, this place gave Blockbuster a run for its money.
HASTINGS WAS MY GO-TO FOR MOVIE AND GAME RENTALS!

Did anybody else hit up Hastings Entertainment like crazy back in the day? Back when there were VHS tapes, DVDs, CDs, cassettes, and Game Cartridges! Wow! Yep. Hastings had it all. I can remember taking my son to rent a game cd for his PlayStation 2! And, I think I bought a memory stick or two for his games.

TEAM HASTINGS OR TEAM BLOCKBUSTER?

Back in the day, you were either Team Hastings or Team Blockbuster here in the Permian Basin. Or heck, maybe both. I definitely had both memberships but remember using and going to Hastings a lot more! If Blockbuster didn't have your MOVIE, you could hit up Hastings and see if they did.
A LONG-GONE ERA OF RENTING MOVIES!
I kind of miss going down the aisles of Hastings looking for that right movie. And, who remembers going to the front desk to see if that NEW RELEASE movie was just turned in? Hastings had more than rentals. It also had cool swag, posters, BOOKS, and more! And, of course, the aisles of awesome CANDY snacks for your movie rentals.
