Blockbuster Officially Shutters Retail Shops

Even though you probably haven’t seen them for a few years now, all of the remaining Blockbuster retail shops will be shuttered by January. Blockbuster’s parent company, Dish Network, said that they would continue to leverage the Blockbuster brand online and across other media, but that it doesn’t make sense to leave the retail network intact at this point. It’s not a surprising turn of events by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s a stark reminder that the vast majority of the population want their content digitally.
