    Default More good news from the high street - Blockbuster goes into administration...

    According to Sky News Blockbuster in the UK has gone into administration...

    Not sure if it'll affect their outlets or similar retailers here but let's face it, it probably will...

    That recovery is looking brilliant... innit?

    Maybe, and this is just a guess on my part, it has something to do with the way consumers are accessing the services that companies such as this provide. This is just a guess though.

    There will be no recovery. Recession and austerity is the new reality.

    I think you're probably right...

    I never understood why companies like 4star and Dominos don't just start a DVD delivery along with the food. They would rake it in.

    It's more typical of the fact that they charge way too much to rent/buy a movie that you can download for free.

    Just because you don't like the competition doesn't mean it doesn't exist and their failure to react is the cause of their demise.

    It is...

    They used to have outlets here... not sure if they still do but there was definitely one on Aungier St. if memory serves...

    Can't be a good sign for similar retailers...
