Blockbuster Closing

Twin Tiers (AP) - Browsing the aisles of thousands of movies might be nothing but a distant memory as a long time rental company is closing its remaining stores. Blockbuster will be no more. The 300 remaining U.S. Stores will close by early January 2014. And the failed attempt at the DVD-by-mail business, introduced as a competitor to Netflix, also will be shut down by mid-December. Dish Network officials said it will retain licensing rights to the Blockbuster brand.
