Blockbuster Closing its Doors: Final 300 Stores Set to Shut Down

Posted: Updated:

It's the end of an era.

Blockbuster -- one-time king of the video rental business -- is closing its remaining 300 company-owned U.S. stores and 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.
