I am a little late with reporting this news, but the Hastings that was covered in the blog closed over two years ago. Here is a link to the article. Sadly many stores like this one have closed over the past decade with chains such as Border's, Hollywood Video, Blockbuster, Media Play, and FYE shrinking or closing altogether. Hastings is still located in many areas, but this closing leaves Huntsville without a good local option for the items they carried. The closest location is in Conroe about 30 minutes South.
No more books, movies, games, coffee, or the rest of the cool items that were sold here.
Here are a couple of pictures of when the store was still in business from 2011.
