Alaska's last two Blockbuster video rental stores will close this week and liquidate remaining inventory, the stores' management announced Thursday.
The Blockbuster stores chugging along up North - including the one that John Oliver'sLast Week Tonight donated Russell Crowe-themed movie props to - are closing down. The stunt brought plenty of attention to the location, but the video store just didn't get the influx of business it was expecting.
The owner of the Alaska stores had told Deadline that the stores remained profitable, but decided that renewing the lease on the stores didn't make financial sense. The last remaining Blockbuster store is located in Bend, Oregon.
"We have a great customer base", he said, "and it kills us to tell these customers that we're having to close down". "We have thought of you as family for the past 28 years". The last two Alaska store leases end in August. As a result of the closures, only one blockbuster in the United States still exists. In September 2010 it filed for bankruptcy and has spent the past eight years closing down stores across the world. Slowly but surely, Blockbuster began to fade away like Thanos performed the "Snap" on all of the store's locations.
