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.
