The Sears on Roswell and Johnson Ferry is closing (well turning into a KMart I guess). 20% of video games and a bunch of other stuff, but I don't think VG hardware is included. The 3DS wasn't anyway.


I guess it depends who you talk to, I was told that the X360 & PS3 was part of the clearence sale.

That location was originally a Kmart before it turned into a Sears. I would rather have a Kmart since they are virtually non-existant in the Atlanta area...

I've done well at the Sears too in my 3ish years here. From a non-video game perspective, my family really likes Lands End and they always have good sales, especially on kid's clothes.

I didn't pick anything up and would never complain about discount video games, but you'd think that most of their stock would just be shifted over to KMart.

At the corner of Bethelview road and Canton Hwy. It was the only location left in Forsyth county.



Huh, never knew about that one, and it's not terribly far from my Mom's house off 141. Oh well.

Yeah, which one? I only ever hit the Crabapple one, the store at the end of Windward, and the one at State Bridge/Jones Bridge. I didn't even bother going to any of those while I was up there for Christmas, because-- TOO MANY UNPLAYED GAMES ON MY SHELF.

Ponce store is still holding on, as far as I can tell.


I just called the Windward store is closing too. You might want check your closest stores, since they just started the liquidation sale. My closest one will close in mid Feb. Apparently the employees got the notification the store was closing a week and a half ago.

Since all of my closest stores have all closed down, I will probably convert to Netflix, because the in store exchanges was one of the best features of Blockbuster Online...

Welp, I spoke too soon. The Ponce store is closing!

14% off used BDs. I got LET THE RIGHT ONE IN and THE FALL for about $13 total, so that was cool.

The one at Jones Bridge / State Bridge still lives, I guess. That's considered Johns Creek, right? Not aware of any others.

If you would keep Tyler Rolison in your thoughts and prayers, I'd greatly appreciate it. He's a son of a friend of mine and he was involved in a car accident that broke his C3-C7 vertebrae. He has feeling in his body and extremities but cannot move his fingers or lower extremities. He has damage to the front of his spinal cord. He will be transferred to the Shepherd Center on Monday. Worse case after Shepherd is he will be a quadriplegic. Best case he will walk but will never fully recover.

I've seen miracles happen before and I'm hoping for another one.

Cool. Found out the other day that the Ponce store is supposed to stay open 'til mid March. Also, they are making no effort to sticker anything. So, that's awesome. Want to buy something? Get ready to get every price checked before you do so. No change in % off yet.

Just got a code for xbox360 saints row 3 DLC season pass AND ps3 uncharted 3 season pass $45 value for free at the Hiram, Georgia Best Buy store touch screen thing tonight. I was with a couple of friends who also printed their codes, so I am not sure if it will still be active tomorrow, but in case it is and you are out and about...I'd check it out


Lucky, i'd love to have the SR3 Season Pass.

The State Bridge BBuster in Alpharetta/Johns Creek is closing, too-- Mid-February. I stopped by there today after a lunch mission to Roswell. Good selection of used BDs, and they're 30% off, BUT they are doing it weird.

If you see one marked for $5.99, it's actually gonna ring up at $7.99, and then get the 30% taken off. As far as I could tell, they just applied some cheaper stickers that are NEAR what the actual discounted price will be. Easier for some to deal with, but it threw off my tallying, ticked me off, and meant that I left a few movies on the counter without buying them. I was expecting to pay 70% of 5.99, which is how it has worked at EVERY OTHER CLOSING BLOCKBUSTER.

Anyway, yeah, decent deals if you're near there. 20% off used games. 10% off new BDs.

Cartersville, GA Blockbuster put up their closing signs this past Friday. Lots of stock, but the markdown isn't that great yet (10% off).

Maybe someone can give me answer on this. Rented Modern Warfare 3 from Sandy Springs Blockbuster back in November. Was doing the monthly pass of 1 movie or game out at a time. Went by the Blockbuster towards the middle or end of December and saw that it closed. They must have cancelled my subscription as it isn't coming out of my account anymore. But what should I do with the game? Do I take it back to another store? I never received a call that the store was canceling or to return the game. Nor have I received call from any other Blockbuster.

Well i'd say if the store's closed and you haven't been charged for it, just keep it; they're apparently not worried about it at this point.

Does anyone have any experience with getting back a stolen xbox? Like dealing with MS to get the IP address of the console and whatnot? My ex won't give me back my xbox and may or may not have sold it yet or be selling it soon. I've filed a police report so I'm just waiting for them to call me about it. If anyone happens to find a guy named Brian selling a 360S near Roswell thats him.

I went to the last remaining open Blockbuster that I know of (in Crabapple), and I couldn't see anything that they are doing that would keep themselves open. Since it is a 30min drive for me, I won't be using that store.

To me it is pretty obvious that Blockbuster can't maintain the retail store business for much longer, when there are cheaper alternatives. Dish network likely primarily purchased Blockbuster in the first place so they could buy the branding...

I just checked with the Crabapple store again, and I was told that it is the only store open in a 30 mile radius, it sounds to me that it is the only store open north of the perimeter...

The one at Windward/McGinnis is still open-- I went there today. They are liquidating, though.

$7 for all used BDs, 30% off used games, 20% off new BDs. Good selection of all remaining.

That is the same deal our Blockbuster in Douglasville, Georgia is doing if anyone is interested. I'd call first because it seems like the sales are different depending on who is there. We went the NEXT day (on a thursday) after being there Wednesday and the prices were not as cheap...made no sense

I know all the stores are still open, it will take at least a month for any of these locations to close permanently.

What I ment to say is that the Crabapple location is going to remain open, they still operating normally (for now), the next store remaining open is 30 miles away.

Blockbuster on Ponce is closing. Blu-Rays and DVDs (used) are 8.99.

New Blu-Rays are 20% off. Not sure about DVDs, but I think it's the same.

Still a good selection. Picked up a couple of used blu rays.

If anyone is interested, I've got an extra ticket to see Tool that I'm trying to get rid of. The ticket is in section 108, row S, seat 15 (side of the stage), and I was hoping to get about face value for it.
