Blockbuster to close remaining US stores

Posted: Updated:

It's the end of an era.

Blockbuster, the one-time king of the video rental business, is closing its remaining 300 company owned stores in the United States.   It is also shutting down its DVD mail operation in January.

Less than 10 years ago, Blockbuster had 9,000 stores.

The company will continue as a streaming service available to customers of its parent company Dish Network.

A handful of independent Blockbuster franchise store owners will be allowed to stay in business.
