There is Only One Blockbuster Video Store Left in America

Also breaking now Andy. there's only one blockbuster left in all of America. A day after they "close", they will be temporarily re-opened through August in an attempt to sell off all remaining inventory. "We have thought of you as family for the past 28 years", wrote District Manager Kelli Vey and General Manager Kevin Daymude in the Facebook post. "I can't tell you how much it means to us".

"We were very up front with them, and they said, 'That's OK, we want you to have it anyway, ' " he said. Not that its legacy was purely benevolent; when Blockbuster came to my town in New Jersey, it systematically put most of the local video stores out of business, and some of them were bigger and had better selections. What a great time to build your media library and share some Blockbuster memories with us.

In recent years, Blockbuster stores have vanished in most of the country. They were long bolstered by nostalgia as well as remote communities with a lack of high-speed Internet access for streaming video.

Even after receiving a gift of movie memorabilia from Russell Crowe's career, through John Oliver's show, "Last Week Tonight", the Debarr road store in Anchorage and the College Road store in Fairbanks will be closing. Blockbuster Video officially went out of business years ago, but three stores actually managed to hold out and continue operations in the United States, until this week.

In 2013, there were thirteen Blockbuster stores in Alaska, which fell to nine by 2016. The last two Alaska store leases end in August. There's also still the last Blockbuster in OR, which has no plans to close anytime soon.

The final two Blockbusters in Alaska are said to still be very profitable.

It's likely that this last surviving location will hang around long enough to become sort of a novelty as it is said to have no intentions closing anytime soon. "It just seems a little crazy" General Manager Sandi Harding said, adding that she doesn't plan on shutting up shop.
