Avi Adelman's just posted over on Barking Dogs that Lower Greenville's losing its longtime Blockbuster on Richmond Avenue -- which probably comes as no surprise, given the state of the bankrupt downtown-based videos-n-such rentalist that could be in the hands of new owners as early as next week. I called the location moments ago, and an employee confirmed: Workers there found out the shuttering Monday.
The woman to whom I spoke says the liquidation sale begins February 28, with The Last Day of Business scheduled, for now, on April 21.
Of course, this is the Blockbuster next to the former Whole Foods location, which -- way back in June of last year -- was mentioned by Realtor Newt Walker as a kinda-maybe-possible new location for Elliott's Hardware once it scoots to make way for the tax-credited Kroger.
