Are Blockbuster Video Stores closing down in your area. If so, how do you feel or how does this affect you?

There is a Blockbuster in our area that was fine last week and now this week has a sign up saying that store will be closing and everything must go. I wish i had the money to go on a shopping spree there now since allot of good and recently released movies are around $2.99 each. As far as it affecting me...as a consumer, it won't. I used to go to blockbuster, but later started subscribing to Netflix and would only go to BB if there was something I wanted to see and Netflix either didn't have it or I didn't want to wait for it if it was a movie that couldn't be streamed. But then stopped going to BB all together when they tried to start being more like netflix and stuff became less available in store. Netflix is cheaper than BB and now I get movies for free at the library if I don't want to wait with Netflix. I do feel bad for the people who's jobs are at risk. It's not helping the unemployment rate, that's for sure.

The Blockbusters in my neighborhood are closing their doors permanently. Where am I supposed to go to talk to video clerks for hours on end about why "Driving Miss Daisy" is the answer to the rapidly declining blue tuna population? Sad to see it go...

The stores are closing yes. Great time to go through one last time and get that movie you always wanted to buy. But now they're setting up BlueBoxes outside grocery stores and gas stations, just like Redbox. They gotta compete someehow!

I don't have a Blockbuster in my immediate area. I guess Blockbuster was blindsided by Netflix.

The block buster here closed 3 or 4 months ago, about a month after Hollywood Video closed. I did go to Hollywood and came out with a stack of dvd's and games for just a few bucks. Some of them had never been opened. I hate to see any business close. A couple of months ago, the Jack in the Box closed. You know you are in trouble when the fast food starts to close their doors. The closing of these stores will not affect me personally because I do not eat fast food nor do I rent movies from either of these places, netflix is much cheaper. However, the failure of any business affects us all as far as the economy goes.

So far the Blockbuster by us has not had any notice of being shutdown but a neighbor down the street lives there and she thinks that they're probably going to at some point in the near future. We also used to rent movies from their store but switched to Netflix. My husband still has an online subscription to Blockbuster that he uses to rent games through the mail. He was in their store recently and told me that they had some great used movie deals so I went with him to look. There were only about four other people in the store besides us the entire time. The place used to be packed so I couldn't go there because I have a hard time in crowds. I do also feel sorry for those who lose their jobs but the company just didn't keep up with the competition.

I had a blockbuster near my house a number of years ago. Since then, I’ve moved to a new area that never had a chain movie rental place. We had a great locally owned movie rental store that would pick up and deliver movies within the hour with only a phone call. I’ve been using Netflix for a long time and really can’t complain about it. I only watch so many movies and the instant options alone are so extensive that I’m never at a loss for something to watch. I miss walking around in the aisles looking at the covers and actually getting to talk to a real person, but I wouldn’t take that over the convenience of online rentals.

Yes I was sad to see any business go under. Hollywood Video went by the wayside, Borders Book Store is now closing. I feel bad for the employees who have to search in this job market. I will probably be standing in the unemployment line with these people.
