Yet another Alaska Blockbuster to shutter doors
Another Blockbuster Video will soon be closing.
This time, it's one of Alaska's remaining three, in Soldotna.
The Soldotna location has already suspended rentals and inventory will go on sale Tuesday at noon. Blockbuster Alaska merch is also available-- even by phone!
The stores have been in the headlines lately after HBO host, John Oliver, gave some memorabilia from actor Russell Crowe's "divorce auction" to the last-remaining Anchorage location on the east-side. Oliver, a comedian, made the gesture as a joke because he was shocked to learn Blockbusters still existed, but he also wanted to help the dying franchise.
In recent memory, at least four Blockbuster locations have shuttered their doors: one each in Anchorage, Eagle River, Wasilla and North Pole.
That leaves two locations left in the 49th State: Fairbanks and Anchorage.
