Melissa’s Blog – Blockbuster changes hours

I happened to ride past Blockbuster last night way before ten o’clock and the lights were out…all the DVDs had gone to bed. What? Before ten? Sure enough, I looked on the door to see that the hours had been changed. Not only does the store close at 9 during the week, but they don’t even open until 11 in the morning…almost lunchtime!

Wow, I thought…well maybe the Blockbusters were in trouble, perhaps feeling the financial crunch as many businesses have in these pitiful economic times, and the change in hours were the beginning of the downfall. But, then, I went to the Blockbuster in Montgomery and their hours have not changed.

How strange…it’s just the Blockbuster store here in Prattville…guess if one is seriously in need of a DVD or game after 9, Movie Gallery’s the place.

  1. lol, Melissa, I get aggravated with the movie rental places being closed in the mornings s until too late. I think they should all open at 8:00 a.m. (they would rent more movies if they would open earlier, and stay open later)..OH…by the way, I'm so happy to see you up and running again!!!!

  2. Perhaps Wally World's DVD movie rental vending machine has put a dent in BlockBuster's business.
    I prefer to get in and out of Block Buster than to enter the mayhem at Wally World.
    PS. I hate that Food World is closing too!!

  3. It's not just Wally World that offers the movie rentals. They are called Redbox and they are located all around town. I live in Millbrook and we have one at Walgreen's — not need to get near Wal-Mart. Each movie is $1 a day, including new releases. I haven't been to Movie Gallery or Blockbuster since!
