North Pole Blockbuster Video to Close

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - One of the only two Blockbuster Video stores left in the Interior will soon be closing its doors for good.
Blockbuster Alaska announced on social media this morning that the North Pole video store stopped renting videos Sunday and will begin selling off its inventory this week.
Although the parent Blockbuster corporation went bankrupt and liquidated its assets years ago, independent franchise owners retained the Blockbuster name and continued with business as usual, and a handful remain across the U.S. Here in Alaska, one Blockbuster franchise remains in Fairbanks on College Road and another two are still open in Anchorage.
In its statement today, Blockbuster Alaska thanked the community of North Pole for supporting its location for many years.
