Blockbuster closing all its UK stores by December 16

Last month we learned aged rental giant Blockbuster would draw its last breath on US soil by January 2014, when all 300 remaining locations would be shut down.

Blockbuster UK is beating us to the punch, it seems. The 91 remaining stores will cease operations by this Monday, December 16. Stock will be discounted by as high as 90% if you can stand fighting shoppers over detritus while the 808 people losing their jobs look on solemnly as you wrestle a 73 cent Wild at Heart DVD out of some postal worker's hand.

Onwards and upwards, I suppose. How about we convert these dessicated husks into something useful, like affordable, low-income housing? No? We're just going to throw some more Starbucks and Pottery Barns and Linens 'n Things in there? Okay. Fine. Whatever.
