Hastings Nacogdoches Texas

Here is another Hastings store in its final days. Thanks to my blog commentators, a some information that I did not know about this and other locations has been revealed. This store was once an Ashley Furniture store prior to becoming this Hastings location.
A typical Hastings Superstore had these departments

Movies for sale and to rent
Music CD's and Records both new and used
Video Games for all major consoles for sale and to rent
Books new and used
Fan zone with collectibles from the big 3 major sports and all teams
Toys and collectables
Electronics with TV's, CD players, record players, walkmans, tablets 
Phone accessories
Guitars and musical instruments
Gag gifts
Outdoor sports
Science projects
Hobby shop with build it yourself cars and RC cars
Magazines and newspapers
Greeting cards
Board games
Magic and Pokemon games
and more

Hastings had a lot of things in one store and you could easily spend hours browsing in the store. Hastings was in the beginning stages of adjusting the products in the stores to increase profits when the company went into bankruptcy. 

Here is the front of the store near the video games.
Near the entrance of the store facing the movie department.
Odds and ends were scattered around the store at this point.
The newsstand was where magazines and papers were located. 
The book department information station.
Fading signs above the book department.
The music and book departments.
One of the few displays in this store with the newest Hastings logo.
Empty movie racks at the back of the store. The video games were at the front of the store right by the entrance.
The movies stretched across the whole back corner of this side of the store. I found a lot of the movies, books, comics, and music from this Hastings location are now sold at an antique shop in the University Mall. The items at the antique shop still have the price tags from this Hastings location.

This information station was right in the middle of the store.
A few images of the registers at this store.

Another register counter.
Can't leave without seeing a Blockbuster Movie Grab. I wonder how many of these were left in storage waiting for a liquidation sale of this kind.
