CORPUS CHRISTI - Movie buffs have been nostalgic about the close of Blockbuster, once a leader in the movie rental business.
From 8mm film, to VHS, to DVDs, the company attempted to keep up with the ever-changing industry with little success. Posting an operational loss of $35 million last year, it came as no surprise that the giant was set to close.
Blockbuster closed doors at its 300 remaining locations in the U.S. but will remain open Thursday for a liquidation sale. DVDs, games and even soda and candy will be on sale Thursday at Blockbuster. Customers can expect 10-20% off these items. The sale starts when the store opens at 10:00am.
