This is a situation where I thought they might have already been dead because so many stores were already closed and because we've all already told our stories about how much we hated rented from Blockbuster or how much we hated working there (that's not me) and how Netflix and Redbox and other services totally eclipsed it - it should've been dead already, right? Like years ago? (Whoever made the deal at Dish to buy Blockbuster must totally agree now.) I was pretty sure the next time I was going to think about Blockbuster was when a logo turned up in a movie set in the late 90s/early 00s, but they hadn't actually gone and died yet. And now they did. - luchablog

The press release suggests that not ALL Blockbuster stores are closing - just the corporate locations. How many are franchised? I'm wondering if the ones that are indeed franchised, if they'd have to change names if the license to use the BLOCKBUSTER name expires.

...on a roll!

We actually have on in my hometown. Not everybody lives in a metropolis, or has a debit card to use at the Redbox (poor rural people unite!)
Maybe I should go ask when the going out of business sale starts.

I'm likely going to feel really dumb for asking this, but is that actually hosted on If it is, even if it's just someone who appropriated a chunk of web space for it, that just makes it 100x funnier. There, I feel better now.
