A set of parents are getting a lot of praise for building a Blockbuster Video inside their home for their autistic son.
Hector Andres Zuniga, 20, has autism and is non-verbal. Family members told the Huffington Post that he has been visiting a Blockbuster store near their home for years.
His parents were heartbroken when he learned the store near his home was closing soon.
“He’s all heart, he’s very tender, but like anyone else, he has bad days,” said dad Hector Sr. “And we knew one of those bad days were around the corner when we found out that the Blockbuster was about to close.”
Hector Sr.’s wife, Rosa, got the idea to build a Blockbuster video for their son inside their home, since the store would be selling out their inventory anyway.
“The employees told us when they’d start selling their stock, and when they did, I was one of the first customers in the store,”said Hector Sr.
