Your tweets: Why you stopped using Blockbuster

Our Business Editor Laura Kuenssberg asked her Twitter followers whether they still used Blockbuster. Here is a selection of tweets from people who stopped using the store:


@itvlaurak poor selection in store if not after new releases, often scratched, shops full of kids and smell and over priced chocolate!


@itvlaurak went in recently. It was like being transported to 1994. Also found their add-on sales policy annoying. Just want a movie not pop


@itvlaurak DVds by post so much easier, esp when you have small kids, also our local BB shop focussed more & more on games,


160 Blockbuster stores to close

Blockbuster's administrators have confirmed they will close 129 stores, in addition to the 31 already announced. The company has 528 stores employing 4,190 staff.
