Customers will be told if their local Blockbuster store is closing so they can return their rentals beforehand.
Deloitte, appointed as administrators on Wednesday, said stores will remain open for business as usual until this time. Lee Manning, joint administrator said:
The store closure plan is an inevitable consequence of having to restructure the Company to a profitable core which is capable of being sold.
We would like to thank the Company’s employees for their support and professionalism during this difficult time. We are also grateful to the customers for their continued support.
