Blockbuster to close remaining UK stores
blockbuster uk shutting down

Blockbuster is already dead in the US, but now after going into administration in January and shutting down a large amount of its stores not long ago, administrators for the chain announced that it will close the remaining 91 UK stores by December 16th, which will result in 808 people losing jobs. Joint administrators Simon Thomas and Nick O’Reilly said,

It is with regret that we have to make today’s announcement, we appreciate this is a difficult time for all concerned and would like to thank staff for their professionalism and support over the past month. Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a buyer for the group as a going concern and as a result had to take the regrettable action to close the remaining stores.

You may want to head over to your nearest Blockbuster before it closes as the company will be reducing remaining stock by up to 90 percent up until the December 15th.
