WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Soon folks in Monkey Junction won’t be able to make it a Blockbuster night. The Blockbuster store on South College Road is closing.

A store employee tells WWAY it will stop renting movies Thursday. Then a clearance sale starts Friday. The worker said there’s no date set for when the store will close for good.

Blockbuster has closed other stores nationwide recently, including one near Independence Mall in Wilmington, because of sagging business due to online, kiosk and mail order rentals.

Nothing at all wrong with that, but you’re holding yourself back, Netflix isn’t. A new GMC Sierra obsoletes the Model A, the DVD obsoletes the VCR, the cell phone obsoletes the land line, the jpeg obsoletes cellulose film, the mpeg obsoletes the 8-track, cassette and CD (we can go on for hours here…). Technology changes with the times and so does the manner in which business is offered. Do yourself a favor and join in, it’s cheaper, more expansive and much more convenient!

Get yourself a ROKU 3, sign up for Netflix, HULU and Amazon Prime. You’ll pay one-third of cable costs, get a better picture, tons more movies and shows all in the convenience of being on your couch without slumping around in a worn-out, by-gone like blockbuster…

This is not right for Block Buster to close down. I always Went there all the time since I moved here 4 years ago. Now since Block Buster closed down I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to do netflix because that is probably what caused Block Buster to close.

Go to Redbox. It’s cheaper and better than blockbuster and their steep rental prices.
