‘Blockbuster video stores have been officially closing around the country’ sounds like 2003 headline. But in the intervening 15 years, a few have been hanging tough.
Now as two stores close in Alaska, just one store is left standing. That store resides in Bend, Oregon, giving customers one chance to step inside the iconic video rental store before it too closes down for good.
According to a Deadline report, the two stores in Alaska stayed open because they remained profitable. Those Alaska outlets, in Anchorage and Fairbanks, officially close down on Monday (July 16th), and the store leases run out in August.
