Did you know there are still Blockbuster Video locations out there? In fact, there are only 10 left in the United States and SIX of them are in Alaska.
Blockbuster became internationally known throughout the 1990’s. At its peak in 2004, Blockbuster employed 84,300 people worldwide, including about 58,500 in the United States and about 25,800 in other countries, and had 9,094 stores. Blockbuster began to lose significant revenue during the 2000’s, and in 2010, the company filed for bankruptcy.
