Yes, the Movie Gallery and Blockbuster stores are also closing their doors in our area. I have to admit, I really love the convenience of Netflix.
Don't forget video-on-demand, Jacob. This is one business I would not want to be in. Nor one I would want to be invested in.
I hate to see any store close, but I think that for Blockbuster stores, it's inevitable.
netflix has become my primary video source for movies, both dvd and streaming through my wd live plus box
I just heard somewhere that video stores and post offices will be a thing of the past!
You still have one. We lost ours two years ago and recently lost Hollywood video. Netflix and Redbox are the only game in town with the exception of the independents.
How to keep up with this changing world? I can't get ribbons for my typewriter anymore. Or tubes for my black and white TV!
things get older sooner...in reply to your question on my post - yes it is the leading daily.
en France, on a beaucoup de VIDEO à la demande sur la Television directement, alors petit a petit les magasins de locations meurent...la fin d'un metier
I just feel bad for the workers. I don't like to see businesses closing down. MB
First the movie theater, then Blockbusters....
I wish we could slow down a bit.
We live in such a fast changing world. What is in and facinating one day is gone soon. Good... and the bad of the times.
we still have our blockbuster, maybe we are so small and backwards we havent caught up to the times.
I don't know if other Blockbuster stores are still open but the one at Oeiras has closed a few monthes ago. It's (another) chinese store now...Thank you for your perfectly clear answer regarding Broward County, Jacob.
Ours went under a long time ago and was turned into a beauty supply store.
It was only a matter of time. We still have one here.
I bet the sales aren't that good... We had a Hollywood whatever video store here that went under & their sales weren't worth a hoot, so don't fall for their gimmicks! LoL! =)
thanks a lot on the lulu.com site, I looked it over just now & I like the calendars & the choice of layouts... I'll look it over further when I get home (I'm at work right now ;) I know, shame on me... heheheee
We don't have a Blockbuster, but we have a locally-owned privateer movie rental store. I finally broke down and got Netflix, but I still rent from them when I can find something I want or when Netflix is too slow (I know, it's fast, but I've been watching a lot of movies while resting!). What I was going to say is, I have such mixed feelings about stores going under due to technology. I love the tech, and I hate to see entrepreneurs going under. It's interesting to see how people adapt, and I believe our local store has been doing a good job of giving people what they want, bringing in more TV shows, having a lot of special nights, etc. They always have customers when I go in.
The Blockbuster here is gone too as is Hollywood Video. We don't have TV, so we watch videos more often and when Hollywood Video was here it was over $4 a rental. Netflix was a better value and more convenient. I enjoy watching it using the Wii now too. I still have a Blockbuster online account where I rent games and movies through. Wonder if that will fold too?
Interesting how the "store closing" sign is almost bigger than the shop's name!Movie dispenser? I don't know this yet. Can hardly imagine... Interesting!God bless you!Cezar
The store in Montrose closed last month.
