When my store closed the prices were all HIGHER than they were ever when they were open! I don't know who runs these liquidations but I can't believe that customers are dumb enough to purchase things for much more than they are normally.

The display tv's? I've always wondered how many hours they've been on for their lifetime.

Blockbuster has already dropped below the critical mass they need to remain viable. They should just give up already and shut them all down. It has become a joke that they keep closing more and more stores. When they closed the 2 most profitable stores in my area a couple years ago that was definitely a sign of the end times.

But yeah, I wish I had 7 of 14 still remaining like evildeadjedi. We're down to 1 within 30 miles where there used to be 20-30. And for all I know, that one is now closing - I haven't been there in 6 months.

Edit: Ok, I looked it up. According to the store locator, there are actually 7 within 30 miles. But 5 of them are 20+ and aren't what used to be within my shopping radius. Probably within that 30 miles there were 40-50 stores 5 or 6 years ago. For sure they were a bit oversaturated back then (especially with a lot of Hollywood Videos amongst them too). But they reached a nice balance 3-4 years ago where there was just 1 for each reasonable (say 5 mile radius) local area. Now, they are "out of sight, out of mind" for most people. Lack of stores makes the online pass with store exchanges (their one big advantage over Netflix) pretty useless for most people.

The store locator still includes stores that are currently liquidating and shutting down, so you may have even fewer within 30 miles.

Yeah, I had considered that afteer I posted. I'd be curious to see but I'm not driving way out to check on them. I'll check on the closest 1 (really the only one that I ever went to with any regularity) when I'm in the area, but the others I'll wait a few months and see if they get removed.

Regardless, the point was that even before any of these close, there aren't enough.

I was going to make a new thread at some point but I think this will probably be the last one. An era has ended...

A Blockbuster near me is also closing down. Despite all the horror stories I'm hearing here about the prices, they told me that everything more expensive than $10 will drop down to $10, not counting hardware. Anything less than $10 will probably be 50% off or something.

For movies, that's probably true, but not for games. No way they drop all games to $10 or less. More likely they raise the price back to MSRP, then take 20% off.

I'm still amazed all mine went out of business. I mean maybe the ones in Ocean City, MD I can understand since they're only busy during warmer months...but they cleaned up during warm months. The one by me in Salisbury MD though there was ALWAYS people in there. I assume it closed down more to do with property rental prices than anything.

Dont be fooled, at a drop of a hat they may close down!

The hollywood video near where I lived did just that!

They hired some people, 3 months later it was closing down.

Mine actually was hiring the week before the liquidation started. Don't be too surprised if it still closes.

I was in my old town and saw the Blockbuster was closing so I stopped in. Games were picked over pretty well (and priced like crap for the most part). Ended up getting The Invincible Iron Man animated movie for $5 and then Rambo: First Blood and the new Rambo for 99 cents (in paper sleeves).

Then I saw a crate full of those cardboard video game place card holders marked 20 for $1 (and in true Pennsyltucky fashion, there was a sign over them that said "GREAT FOR TARGET PRACTICE". I grabbed some for games I have and in the last few found the one I wanted most, Left 4 Dead 2. I think the newest I saw was around Borderlands 2. Oh, and I also bought a Sprite that was 40% off too.

And yeah, everything was for sale. Shelves, equipment that looked like it printed receipts or did scanning, computer monitors, etc. Also a shelf full of disney figurines for $5 each including Beetlejuice, Tinkerbell and others. And some Star Wars ones on the other side.

Lady and worms

Memorial Day sale May 21st to May 27

Buy 1 get 1 free movies
Buy 1 get 1 free games (29.99 and under :shock::bouncy:)
75% off toys and collectibles

Now there might be a price drop but I won't know until Thursday or Friday if not look at my list that I posted 2 or 3 pages ago.

If you have a chance to score a gold halo POP! Figure at 75% Do it! 9.99 with discount about 2.75. The gold figurine is exclusive to blockbuster so no other retail will have it. Put that baby in the closet and in 2 to 3 years that will be worth a lot of money when blockbuster closes all stores!! Going about $60 at eBay
