Blockbuster Officially Busted

All stores, including one in Philly, are shutting down.

Netflix! (Shakes fist.)

To the surprise of many, Blockbuster still has a few brick-and-mortar stores open, but today the company announced that it will close all of its 300 remaining locations in the United States. That includes the last remaining store in Philadelphia— located at 6801 Frankford Ave. There are also a few in New Jersey, although they are a bit far from the Philadelphia area (located in Fair Lawn, Belleville and Elizabeth.)
