    On the main street of a small Saskatchewan town - fittingly in
    a building that used to be a movie theatre - sits what may be
    one of the last video rental stores in the province.

    Earl Hayhurst has run the Video Stop in Watrous for nearly 33 years.

    "[I] love movies. Always have. Always will," Hayhurst said. "So
    I got into the right business many, many years ago. I still
    enjoy it, even though I don't make any money anymore."

    "Some of the younger visitors to his store are likely seeing a
    video rental place for the very first time, he says.

    "They've never seen a video store. They walk around kind of
    stunned at what they're seeing. And they don't understand
    because they have no concept of it."

    [...]

    "I've lasted more than 10 years longer than Blockbuster and
    Rogers, so there you go."
