Blockbuster stores in Alaska to close

Blockbuster managed to survive the onslaught of video streaming in Alaska because of poor internet service compared to the rest of the U.S. Harsh weather conditions would often cut the Internet connection. And the future looked bleak from a financial standpoint. Maybe, Blockbuster should have hopped on the streaming train along with Amazon, Apple, and other companies that made a decision to step into the new age. The stunt brought plenty of attention to the location, but the video store just didn't get the influx of business it was expecting. The closures will leave the Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon, as the final one still operating in the US. He added that his team had explained to people involved with Oliver's show that the stores would probably not be open much longer. She said she has been working at Blockbuster for 14 years and seen her share of heartache as stores closed.

The two closures will affect The Last Frontier. But the way people consumed their movies drastically changed in the 21st century. Streaming has its advantages; there is a reason it has taken over the movie world. Blockbuster went bankrupt back in 2010, and was purchased by Dish the next year. By 2013, there were only 13 stores left in America. And now...here we are.

The stores in Anchorage and Fairbanks will close for rentals after Sunday night and reopen Tuesday for video liquidation sales through the end of August, said Kevin Daymude, general manager of Blockbuster Alaska.

The statement says both Vey and Daymude have been with the company since 1991.

"Thank you for sticking by us throughout all these years", Daymude said in a heartfelt message on Facebook. We hope to see you at our stores during the closing, even if it's just to say "Hello".

So it seems like if you want to relive your greatest Blockbuster memories, you still have time.

We imagine you're now wondering where the last Blockbuster in the United States is. "We have a bunch of 19-year-olds working here - it's fun explaining to them what a floppy disk is".
