All blockbuster stores to close by next year
November 7 , 2013
Blockbuster stores were numbered 9,000 about a decade ago but only 300 of them are remaining now. Those too, will be closed for good in the US by early January.
Although, the brick-and-mortar part of the franchise as well as the mail service will be closed, its name will remain alive in streaming services.
"This is not an easy decision, yet consumer demand is clearly moving to digital distribution of video entertainment," Dish CEO said.
