Farewell to the Loneliest Blockbuster


View Larger Map

Maybe you recall that back on September 15, Elm Street-based Blockbuster filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a little heads-up that, oh, just maybe it would shutter by the end of 2010

somewhere between 810 and 1,560 stores

-- it all depends on how you define "shutter." (Some brick-and-mortars could be converted to outlet stores of some kind.) Since that initial announcement, nothing -- till today: John Wright at the

Dallas Voice

has received confirmation that the Blockbuster at 3911 Lemmon Avenue -- "known for its GLBT-interest section" -- will be

adiosed by January

, with its farewell preceded by a clearance sale that's already underway. I drive by this Blockbuster all the time. I thought it closed years ago. I mean, look at the parking lot. It's

always

like that.
