Blockbuster to close 300 remaining U.S. stores

Blockbuster to close 300 remaining U.S. stores - chicagotribune.com

Blockbuster Video, who most of us probably didn’t even realize was still operating brick and mortar locations, will shutter their final 300 stores by the end of next month.

I can’t say I’ll miss them for a multitude of reasons (excluding a store closing sale, I hadn’t stepped foot in a location since joining Netflix in 2003) but I’m feeling a touch nostalgic.  Any memories or horror stories to share in the comments?

  1. It doesn’t feel like so long ago I was regularly going to this store…but it is so long ago.
    Now perhaps it will live-on in eternity for that scene in The Last Action Hero.
