Blockbuster mixed messages

The scene in Leopold Street just now. Similar posters have prompted comment on news sites elsewhere. In Barnstaple for example a news article contains the following comment:  "However, a head office spokesman today said she couldn’t be certain the store was closing and said the company  “remained hopeful” a buyer could be found."
As in Barnstaple, still some hope perhaps but the poster hardly gives an upbeat message.

This is what high speed internet does for one store on our High St

Especially when it's a national chain that pretended the internet didn't exist, much to the joy of LoveFilm and Netflix.

Blockbuster offered online rentals and purchases sometime back (not streaming) which kinda negates the need for retail shops
