In case anyone cares, the Morgantown Blockbuster is closing. Apparently, the nitwit landlord has crossed Blockbuster by not fixing a pipe or something to that effect. No one seems to have the story straight. This is the only Blockbuster for miles and I'm disgusted for one. Only in Morgantown do you start to make progress and head backward over something ridiculous. Thank God for online video rental...what's the alternative? El Video? Complaints can be directed to Blockbuster's Customer Care Line at (800)406-6843.

Other rumors sasy that Blockbuster is LOSING money here. With online rentals, pay per view, on demand, etc., video stores are a thing of the past.
I just wish someone would build a Mexican, or Thai, or KFC restaurant around here. NO MORE PIZZA!!

I suspect you're right. If Blockbuster was making money at this location, they would put the screws to that property owner and keep the store open or find another nearby location. Let's face it...this area simply doesn't have the population to keep commercial owners happy. Maybe someday.

THIS A FALSE STATEMENT- GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU POST SOMETHING. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE HEARD ON THE NEWS THAT THEY ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS NATIONWIDE. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LANDLORD AND/OR A PIPE. SEEMS LIKE THE ONLY NITWIT WOULD BE SOMEONE WHO WOULD MAKE THIS TYPE OF A POST WITHOUT HAVING ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THE SITUATION.

That location has over 40,000 cars a day passing by there. Lets face it, there are much cheaper places to rent videos and these stores are not in as much demand as they were years ago. That's why there are so many of them closing nationwide, not just Morgantown. All the other restaurants/stores in that area are doing great business. It's not the landlord or the area it's simply demand for a product that is no longer in great demand.

mark thanks for your keen insight. Unfortunately, your fact-checking skills should have alerted you that the OP was referring to the Blockbuster in Morgantown, PA closed years ago.
