Last Blockbuster Store in Rockford Closing

LOVES PARK (WIFR) -- This story comes straight from Facebook, Fred wanted to know if rumors are true that the Blockbuster on Riverside is going out of business.

Employees say they are closing but there is no time line as to when they will shut their doors. This was the last Blockbuster location still open here in the Rockford area. According to the International Business Times, Blockbuster will close more then 300 stores this year. Most are under-performing stores or locations nearing the ends of their leases.
