Deathwatch: Another 164 Blockbuster stores to shut their doors
On the day when clobber retailer Republic goes into administration, the news has emerged that another 164 Blockbuster stores will be closed, in addition to the 160 that have already been announced.
The video/DVD/games rental chain used to have 528 stores and with 324 of those earmarked for closure, it doesn’t look good for the remaining shops.
Closing stores will remain open for business as usual and customers will be notified in advance of closure so they can return rental items. There will also be a number of promotions across the stores.
The remaining stores will stay open for now, but it’s anyone’s guess what will become of them.
