There Will Only Be 1 Blockbuster in America Soon

Alaska's last two Blockbuster stores - one in Anchorage and another in Fairbanks - announced they would officially close on Sunday.

The harsh realities of modern business are that the world only has enough room in it for one Blockbuster Video store, but don't worry: according to Harding, the OR location has no plans to close down anytime soon.

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

The days of aimlessly walking the aisles of your local Blockbuster every Friday night have been over for years in most parts of the United States. By this year, only a pair in Alaska and the final OR store had endured.

Anchorage Daily News reports the video rental chain has been endangered for several years now - in 2013, there were 13 surviving Blockbuster outlets, but three years later, that number had dwindled to just nine. It's a bit of a destination.

"It's kind of emotional", she said. Blockbuster then peaked in 2004 with an incredible 9,094 stores worldwide ... and then quickly plummeted to declare bankruptcy in 2010.

The bodies of a man and a woman were discovered near a running vehicle just before 9 p.m.at an apartment complex in Newark. Johnson said that he arrived at his New Jersey home home and found the two dead in the garage.

The Blockbuster stores chugging along up North - including the one that John Oliver's Last Week Tonight donated Russell Crowe-themed movie props to - are closing down. But ultimately, it wasn't enough.

"You would not believe how much business we got just from that memorabilia alone", he said. A Facebook post near the end of June on the Blockbuster Alaska page read, "We see you out there taking selfies in front of our stores, show them to us!" We hope to see you at our stores during the closing, even if it's just to say 'Hello.' What a great time to build your media library and share some Blockbuster memories with us. While some doubt that location will close anytime soon given that it seems to still attract a crowd, it's worth noting that the owners of the Alaska locations have stated that the stores were still considered to be profitable.
