The two Blockbusters in our town went out of business years ago. One of them was right at the entrance to a busy supermarket - that one really surprised me. I only went there a few times, they had a good selection of direct-to-video stuff on their back wall. Very lousy selection of older movies though. Kind of sad, I always thought of going to Blockbuster to rent something as a sort of tradition. I'm afraid I wasn't of much help to them, when I found out I could buy used DVD's from the sellers on Amazon for about the same price as a rental from Blockbuster
I suppose Netflix drove the final nail in their coffin. I think they got a little too big and that caused them to be fairly unresponsive to the desires of their customers.
