Blockbuster filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and brick and mortar stores are now a rare sight. Dish Network took over Blockbuster and it announced today that they will close the remaining 300 stores in the US within the next two months. They will now only be operating online.

If this type of consumer demand continues into the future, many companies should consider how to change their physical distribution model into an online, on-demand model.
