It's time to go retro at the Blockblast VHS Rental Shop!

Before DVDs and online streaming, VHS was king!What sort of memories does VHS bring back for you?What sort of memories does VHS bring back for you?

Ahhhhh the 90s. It's a decade that is pretty easy for many of us to get nostalgic about. Friends, mobile phones the size of bricks, Pokemon and the last decade before the internet well and truly changed the world for good. Great times.

This week on Smeet sees the return of another awesome feature of the decade - VHS! Welcome to the Blockblast VHS Rental Shop!

These shops were familiar high-street staples long before people even thought about online streaming services! Almost everyone had a membership at a local VHS Rental Shop to borrow movies for home viewing! What's more, it wasn´t just new movies you had recently watched in the cinema that were available, you had the chance to rent out some golden oldies as well! If your favourite film hadn´t been on TV for a long time and you couldn´t afford to buy it outright, it was no problem! A short visit to the rental shop and it was yours, if only for a few days! At the end you just needed to rewind the tape and give it back. Did anyone else regularly forget the rewinding part?

Grab the new Smeet Rental Shop and dive back into the world of VHS tapes. Lend Horror, Romcom and Action movies to your customers, put up different old-school cardboard standups and fill your Rental Shop with Retro flair!
