Blockbuster Closing Last Remaining Stores

Image

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.

We can clearly see that the world around us is moving more toward online distribution of entertainment. It is more convenient and easy for customers and most companies are recognizing that. 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.
