Blockbuster stores on Washington and Peach Orchard roads to close early 2012

  • Follow Business

Blockbuster stores on Washington and Peach Orchard roads will liquidate their inventory and close in early 2012.

The inventory liquidation will begin Dec. 27, according to a store manager who refused to give her name.

Messages sent to Blockbuster corporate officials were not returned Wednesday.

Blockbuster declared bankruptcy this year and was acquired by Dish Network. At the time of the bankruptcy auction in April, there were 1,700 Blockbuster stores nationwide. Shortly after the acquisition, nearly 200 stores closed, including one in Evans.

I say good riddance. I stopped using them because the customer service stank. Other than the face that the industry moved on and left them in their dust I think they are getting what they deserve.

The company waited too long

The company waited too long to jump onto the Netflix bandwagon.

I thought they had all

I thought they had all already closed. It's the same as with Borders, these brick and mortar stores can't really compete with Netflix, ebooks, etc.

We stopped using Blockbuster
Unpublished

We stopped using Blockbuster years ago. We constantly got hit with late fees when movies had been dropped off early. Phone calls would take care of the fees, but it was a blatant attempt to rip off their customers.
