Abstract

When Blockbuster Video announced the widespread closure of its U.S. storesin late 2013, the announcement was met with little surprise. Video stores hadbeen in decline for the last decade, and the closure of a local store had becomea familiar experience for many. This announcement from a multinationalchain, however, seemed to signal the death of video stores entirely; if the biggestchain of them all seemed to think there was no future in video, howwould any of them survive?
