They suck!
The friendly employees were getting passed-over and exploited here. Leaving a very crappy mean staff. They were even picking on seniors.
I warned them they would be closing and with great hubris they jested. Once they closed, a few years back, I explained to many how those bullies would be looking for work while being interviewed by those they harassed.

Man I didn't realize some were still around.

I can remember the days of renting Atari and Nintendo Games from the local video stores around here. Those were the days.

Re: Blockbuster Video Closing 300 Stores soon
I worked at Hollywood Video, then Game Crazy as a manager for years and years. As soon as they sold out to Movie Gallery, it went down the shit hole. Then Netflix got a lot bigger (online streaming) and of course Red Box started popping up everywhere. Needless to say, they closed my store 2 months after I left and the rest went down left and right. I miss those days too.

We are in the last Throes of the entire collapse of America...

Its over folks... OVER....

This time next year, people will be remember not about renting movies at BlockBuster, but rather...the "good old days when they had a roof over their heads, and food in their belly..."

They will be eating rotting rats, with and old packet of Taco Bell hot sauce to make it "Gourmet" in a back alley...

And loving it...Happy to be one of the few still alive...

Its over....

Buy the new released games you get from them if you do the mail service.

New releases from block buster cost half the price this way! Even if the game is four days old.


HAHA.

You are a damn fruit loop. Blockbuster had a horrible business model that was doomed from the start. To start they prayed upon user willingness to ignore phony late fees. With instant streaming, netflix, redbox, u name it, Bb is a pathetic brick&mortar dinosaur post the asteroid smack down.
