Our Business Editor Laura Kuenssberg asked her Twitter followers whether they still used Blockbuster. Here is a selection of tweets from people who still use the store:
@itvlaurak I still use Blockbuster because my internet is too unreliable for streaming films, and the staff are always enthusiastic.
@itvlaurak I use it but only to buy movies an boxed sets. Never rented anyway, but always use virgin on demand if fancy a rental.
