Blockbuster Down to Final U.S. Location

Blockbuster Down to Final U.S. Location

The Oregon store manager told the AP that her location becoming the last in the US could possibly boost sales, adding that her business was not in danger of closing.

For years now in Alaska, announcements have cropped up every few months that another Blockbuster will shut its doors. Now that the two locations in Alaska are retiring, that leaves only one store left. On Tuesday, July 17 they will reopen for an inventory sale at noon through July and August.

"It's always kind of a kick in the trousers every time we close a store", explained Payne.

At its peak, Blockbuster operated over 9,000 stores, the New York Times reported in 2011.

In the Fairbanks area, Vey said the challenge of getting speedy, affordable internet service is one thing that brings people to the store. Not that its legacy was purely benevolent; when Blockbuster came to my town in New Jersey, it systematically put most of the local video stores out of business, and some of them were bigger and had better selections. "We can't string this out any longer without creating some financial problems". A Blockbuster video store is seen on November 6, 2013 in Miami, Florida.

Trump says committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as allies agree to boost defense spending
Member states had already agreed, dating back in 2014, to increase their base level defense spending to 2 percent. And it comes just days before Trump sits down with Putin at the conclusion of his closely watched European trip.

"It's kind of emotional", she said.

The Anchorage store recently acquired actor Russel Crowe's jockstrap that he wore during the 2005 movie "Cinderella Man", as well as other memorabilia, including a vest Crowe wore in 2012's "Les Miserables", a robe and boxing shorts also from "Cinderella Man", a hood from 2010's "Robin Hood" and both Crowe and Denzel Washington's set chairs from 2007's Oscar-nominated "American Gangster".

"The economy plays a big role in it, and it's just not what it used to be", Daymude said.

It's not clear yet what will happen to the memorabilia, Payne said. "I want to talk to Kevin (Daymude) personally because we can't have this happen'". "I can't thank John Oliver or his show enough". "I'm not sure what we're going to do with it". The location has no plans of closing anytime soon, according to store general manager Sandi Harding. "We have thought of you as family for the past 28 years ... It just seems a little insane".
